G.L. Homes Previews Valencia Lakes in Tampa Bay

TAMPA, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 8, 2005 -- G.L. Homes brings nearly 30 years of experience and its signature Active-Adult community -- Valencia Lakes -- to the Tampa Bay area and will be previewing their new community beginning Saturday, September 10, 2005, and continuing through Friday, September 30, 2005.

At the preview, potential homebuyers will be able to preview 16 elegant floor plans, as well as the plans for the recreational and social clubs in the community, which include many amenities such as a theater and conference center, dance studio, fine arts center, full-service spa and salon, fitness center, grand ballroom with stage, internet café, three pools, tennis courts, putting green and more. Brokers are welcome, although prices will not be available at the preview.

With a spectacular staffed and gated entrance planned, full-time lifestyle director and fitness staff, two enormous club houses with over 64,000 total square feet, Valencia Lakes is sure to become one of Tampa's hottest selling communities.

"No other community can compare with the activities, the recreation and the beauty that will define Valencia Lakes," said Rick Costello, president for the Florida West Coast Division of G.L. Homes. "Active adults will be impressed with this fantastic community from the moment they drive through the community's lushly landscaped, picturesque entry. Dramatic architectural designs, from the beautiful gatehouse to the spectacular clubhouse will dot this master-planned community."

Homebuyers know that the reputation of the builder is as important as the home itself. Each home at Valencia Lakes will be built to exceed the strictest construction industry standards, and also includes a Dwelling Warranty that covers the home of major structural defects for 10 years. G.L. Homes has a stellar reputation for providing outstanding customer service through a fully staffed, professional on-site Warranty Department. In addition, during the first year of ownership, G.L. homebuyers will have access to a 24-hour home warranty response hotline.

Because of the fantastic value that G.L. Homes offers -- great amenities, home designs, prices and services -- it's easy to see why G.L. Homes is now officially rated as the #1 builder in South Florida (according to the Appraisal and Real Estate Economics Associates, Inc. [AREEA] Report).
