What It's About:
The Springs of Mill Lakes is the vision-come-true for an Alabama developer who has a passion for the Baby Boomer market. This community encompasses a 125-acre natural setting of 134 single-family custom homes; a 45-acre perpetually protected wildlife sanctuary owned by the HOA; and The Lodge at Mill Lakes, a premier senior community with wellness and support services. During this session, hear the developer’s story (and pitfalls) as he shares how he developed the land, secured the builders and sold nearly 50% of home sites one year after being open. Winner of eight NAHB Best of 55+ Housing Awards in 2018, this amenity-rich community is one of Alabama's most successful 55+ new home neighborhoods.
