New Home Sales on Target at WCI Communities' Heron Bay

Nearly 50% of Phase One and Phase Two Homesites Under Contract

BONITA SPRINGS, FL--(Marketwire - Aug 23, 2011) - WCI Communities announced today that new residential sales are on target to meet projections with nearly half, 49%, of Phase One and Phase Two homesites now under contract in Parkland's Heron Bay. WCI began sales of its 196 new homes in the prestigious community of Heron Bay, which is located on Coral Ridge Drive, just west of the Florida Turnpike and I-95, in May. Forty homes are currently under contract with Phase III homesites to be released soon.

"Our sales are on target with our forecasts, with brisk sales over the summer months," said Douglas L. Schwartz, Senior Vice President of WCI Communities. "Our sales team has noted the strong demand for new construction homes, particularly in a first-rate community like Heron Bay, and we expect that demand to continue into the fall."

Schwartz continued, "Heron Bay's buyers have been attracted to the combination of amenities and wide variety of home styles, as well as the convenient location in one of the best school districts in the state."

Heron Bay is a master-planned gated community of 3,000 homes on 1,184 acres. Residents of the community enjoy a tropical resort vacation without leaving home. For a low HOA fee, residents have access to amenities that rival many four-star resorts.

Heron Bay offers two spectacular clubhouses: The Commons with 6,000 square feet and the 23,000-square-foot Plaza del Lago. Between the two facilities, Heron Bay offers two resort-style pools, two fitness facilities, a kids' spray park, indoor and outdoor racquetball courts, an arts and crafts room, as well as a tennis center with 10 Har Tru courts and two hard courts and a tennis shop. The community also features biking and walking trails interlaced throughout the community and Heron Bay Golf Club, owned and operated by ClubLink, which hosted the PGA Tour Honda Classic for six years.

The welcome center, located on Heron Bay Drive just off Coral Ridge Drive, is open seven days a week. The welcome center can be contacted at 954-340-2679.
