Paving the Way

Developers investing in Sanford recognize the city’s strong foundation and bright potential, and various residential projects helping support the growth and development of Lee County are already underway. One major housing development underway in Lee County is Galvin’s Ridge, planned to be a 1,000-unit community with a mix of single-family homes, townhomes, and apartments. Over thirteen of the planned community’s 427 total acres will be commercial space. The project will also include a clubhouse, public/private greenways, a neighborhood pool, a playground, dog park, sports court, and picnic area.

A second development in progress is Laurel Oaks, a 625-unit community set on 210 acres. The new community will also feature amenities such as a clubhouse, playground and greenway trails.
