55+ communities in Florida

How NEO’s 55+ projects rethink life after retirement

As the sun sets over the stunning Florida landscape, a new chapter of life is opening for people nearing retirement age and looking for a radical change. The Sunshine State is an ideal landing spot for this specific demographic because of its famous adult communities (find out why to choose to live in an adult community in Florida) and New Estate Only, the largest showcase of pre- and under-construction projects in Florida, is the ultimate tool with which to find one. All you need to do is choose. 

Which 55+ NEO community to pick for living in Florida?

There is no denying that there are many lifestyles you can aspire to for your so-called golden years. While some prefer to spend their time outdoors, playing water sports, tennis, golf (did you know that Florida is highly renowned for its golfing communities?), or simply walking through beautiful natural landscapes, others prefer to enjoy the spaces in their homes, making the most of all the amenities or spending time socializing in the common areas with other residents and lounging by resort-style pools or in the wellness spas that many communities have.

The broad range of 55+ projects in Florida available on NEO’s platform can meet the many needs and requirements of buyers. First, regarding the choice of area. The pre- and under-construction 55+ projects on NEO’s showcase are scattered across all of Florida, from north to south, from major cities to the quieter corners. All you have to do is set up NEO’s advanced search by choosing the area of interest if you have already pinpointed the Florida area you’d like to live in (find out how to make the most of NEO’s advanced search functions). If, on the other hand, you are still undecided about which area of Florida is best for you, read our article on Florida’s major cities or be inspired by some of the most beautiful adult communities featured on NEO, New Estate Only.

Southshore Bay Active Adult

Lennar is always a guarantee for good quality and this rings true also when it comes to adult communities. The Southshore Bay Active Adult, located between Bradenton and Tampa in Wimauma, Florida, is a 55+ community perfect for residents seeking active community living without having to give up their privacy and space. The residences are of four types (The Villas, The Manors, The Estates, and The Grand Estates) and all are well arranged within the community space cleverly interspersed with social areas. The latter includes a resort-style swimming pool, a clubhouse with a billiard room, a fitness center, and areas entirely devoted to more dynamic activities, including tennis and pickleball. In short, Southshore Bay Active Adult ranks as an excellent choice for simple living that caters to all your needs. 

The Watermark At West Palm Beach

“History. Luxury. Vitality. Palm Beach has long been a playground for the elite—both inspiring and invigorating, it is a sun-kissed setting where the beaches are golden, the boutiques are glamorous, and the best is always within easy reach. The Watermark at West Palm Beach is a community for seniors who seek an elevated escape of their own. Here, among the shops and restaurants of vibrant Clematis Street and famous landmarks such as The Breakers Hotel, you’ll discover a sanctuary where you can thrive”. This is how Zom Living luxury adult community has chosen to introduce itself. Here affluence is reserved not only for the elegant and refined spaces with attention to detail but also for the person. Being able to choose between independent or assisted living, the residents of this adult community naturally find everything they need.


An entirely similar style and approach to this 55+ community is that of The Watermark at Coral Gables, another adult community located in beautiful and vibrant Coral Gables, featuring 200 modern residences ranging from studios to one- and two-bedroom apartments.

Lakes at Harmony

As the name suggests, this adult community at Jones Homes USA is all about harmony. From the simple and essential aesthetics of the available residences (there are as many as 10 models to choose from) to the peace and tranquility of the surrounding landscape. Everything at The Lakes at Harmony is comfortable, close to nature, and not far from the hustle and bustle of nearby Orlando. Although nature is the predominant part of this community, the homes enjoy modern designs and, most importantly, the latest technologies that allow residents to live in beautiful Florida to the fullest.

These were just a few examples of the types of 55+ communities you can find on NEO’s platform. To access the full listings click here!
