The Villages

The Villages is an age-restricted CDP located in Central Florida. Since its creation in 1983, the population has swelled to over 120,000 and between 2010-2019 about 25,000 new homes were constructed. The sense of community, impressive array of amenities, and fairly robust housing stock have made it America’s most popular retirement destination and largest private development. While currently held as an industry model in the growing retirement market, The Villages nonetheless faces legitimate questions regarding urban sprawl, the health of its community, legislative oversight, and the implications of its age restrictions.
