With the new city that formed in Palm County back in June, Minto Communities recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Westlake’s grand opening celebration for the highly anticipted first community called the Hammocks.

The grand opening on Saturday for Westlake in Palm Beach County attracted hundreds of people, including some who bought homes at the 3,800-acre development.

Minto Communities, the developer, opened the development’s sales center to the public along with six model homes at The Hammocks.

Mike Belmont, president of Minto Communities USA, told the Palm Beach Post that the company sold about 20 homes Saturday. Prices start at $276,990 for homes with the Sage-model floor plan. In addition to thousands of homes, the master-planned Westlake development eventually will have 2.2 million square feet of non-residential properties, including restaurants, retail stores and schools.
