ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Del Webb communities represent almost half of the 55 Best Active Adult Communities of 2019 released recently by 55places.com, an online resource that compares active adult communities in the United States. Six of the 26 Del Webb communities on the list were ranked in the top ten, with Sun City Texas and Sun City Hilton Head taking the second and third spots, respectively.
“The Del Webb approach of offering an unparalleled living experience, with resort-style amenities and a thriving social and active lifestyle built around quality-crafted homes continues to resonate with homebuyers,” said John Chadwick, executive vice president and chief operating officer of PulteGroup, Del Webb’s parent company. “By continuously refining our offering to meet changing consumer tastes, but remaining true to the brand’s core values, Del Webb has remained the industry leader for almost 60 years.”
“55places.com’s Best 55+ Active Adult Communities are identified by analyzing a variety of factors, including available amenities, lifestyle options, and resident reviews, to name a few," said Danny Goodman, chief operating officer of 55places.com. "This year, Del Webb dominated nearly half of the list, which demonstrates not only leadership in its category, but a clear commitment to provide residents with what matter most: well-planned communities, quality homes, and engaging social opportunities."
The Del Webb communities on the list that are currently under production include: Sun City Texas in Georgetown, Texas; Sun City Hilton Head in Bluffton, and Del Webb Charleston at Nexton, in South Carolina; Del Webb Ponte Vedra near Jacksonville, and Del Webb Stone Creek in Ocala, Florida; Sun City Festival near Phoenix, and Sun City Anthem at Merrill Ranch in Florence, Arizona; Sun City Mesquite near Las Vegas, Nevada; and Sun City Peachtree in Griffin, Georgia. These communities are still in production and open for new home sales.
For the past few decades, Del Webb communities have been focused on meeting the needs of baby boomers, but with the oldest Gen Xers now turning 55, the market opportunity is not only expanding, but evolving. To meet this evolving demand and further extend its leadership position serving active-adult buyers, earlier this year Del Webb announced plans for 10 new communities.
Consistent with the brand’s broad consumer appeal, the new Del Webb communities are planned for all regions of the country, in more urban and suburban locations, from New England, New Jersey and Minnesota, to the Mid-Atlantic, Florida, Texas and Nevada. New community designs offer a mix of traditional ‘destination style’ resort communities, as well as more intimate, urban focused Del Webb developments that meet the needs of buyers with different lifestyle priorities.

• Del Webb Chauncy Lake, Westborough, MA, Summer 2019
