Where are the Fastest Growing Cities in Florida?
Florida is our home state and favorite place to be, and according to new data from the U.S. Census Bureau, many people feel the same way! Recent population estimates place the Sunshine State as the third fastest growing state in the nation, with the cities of St. Cloud and our hometown of Lakeland among Florida’s top 10 fastest growing cities based on numeric growth. And, when percentage of population is considered, St. Cloud is one of the fastest growing cities in the entire nation!
St. Cloud added 2,567 residents between July 1, 2017 and July 1, 2018, a 5% increase in population, ranking it as the ninth fastest-growing city in the U.S. At 54,115 residents, the city offers metro Orlando home owners an option for a small hometown near the big city’s employment options and attractions.
We build new homes in St. Cloud, FL at Gramercy Farms, a popular neighborhood with amenities. Townhomes at Gramercy Farms are priced from the $240,000s and offer three-bedrooms, a modern open layout, gourmet kitchen, and private owner’s suite, plus a one-car garage and private covered lanai. Homeowners love the neighborhood playground, dog park, basketball court and picnic pavilion, as well as beautiful nature views of an adjacent lake. And, these St. Cloud new homes are just moments away from the Florida Turnpike and Highway 192, offering easy commuting and access to Orlando’s shopping, dining and attractions.
Lakeland, a larger city positioned about half-way between Orlando and Tampa, is also among the ten fastest growing cities in Florida and added 2,725 residents between July 1, 2017 and July 1, 2018, climbing to a total population of 110,516.
Highland Homes has called Lakeland our hometown since 1996, and we’re proud to build dream homes in this growing city. Currently, we build Lakeland new homes in five distinct communities with pricing ranging from the $180’s to $300’s. Whether you are looking for your first home or a luxurious dream home, one of our Lakeland new home communities will deliver!
