The Elements at Brightwater

  • award winning brightwater

    AWARD-WINNING
    COMMUNITIES

    We are extremely proud to offer some of the area’s most popular and Award-Winning communities. Metro is honored to have won high accolades for its amenities, homes, technology, people, innovation, and more. At Metro Places we are committed to the Gold Standard in the Development of Master Planned Communities.

  • METRO
    LAGOONS

    Metro Places is proud to be the FIRST to offer the world’s top amenity to the U.S.! The introduction of Metro Lagoons by Crystal Lagoons® will forever change the way you view tropical living in the beautiful sunny state of Florida. We have brought the best of the coastline to some of the most rapidly growing and sought after communities, with crystal clear blue waters that span in size from 5 acres to over 15 acres surrounded by shores of resort-style fun, cabanas, bars and sandy beaches.

  • PARK

    When we designed our communities, we thought about all of our residents. Even the pooches. So the Park we’ve designed for your loyal and obedient friends is the place to let them run wild. Lots of cool shade and places to keep them hydrated on hot days. They’ll be sitting up and begging you to take them there everyday.

  • Miles of Trails element

    MILES
    OF TRAILS

    Get out and get going on our system of sidewalks, natural paths and trails that connect and cover several miles around the community. Cycle, walk, jog or skate. Whatever your route, you’ll find fun and adventure along the way.

  • TOP
    BUILDERS

    Living in a Metro Places community means your home will be built by an award-winning builder with a focus on the best of design, eco-friendly features, attractive pricing and a friendly, helpful team of people. With many home options and builder choices, we make it easy to find the right fit.

  • STREETLEAF
    SOLAR STREETLIGHTS

    Life just got brighter! Streetleaf is available at select Metro Places communities and is the first-of-its-kind solar streetlight system in the nation. Streetleaf delivers more than modern appeal and nighttime security. Not only does it save energy, it is not reliant on a power grid which reduces dependence on conventional utilities. The smart technology will automatically dim during inactivity and power to full strength when someone walks or drives by. Streetleaf is only one of the many reasons why Brightwater is a unique place to call home. Innovation lives here. So should you.

  • GATED
    ENTRY

    Residents will have peace of mind with the additional benefit of a gated entry. Come and go as you please with remote access and call-in access for visitors.

  • SHADED
    TOT LOT

    Every resident, small or tall, needs their own space! The Tot Lot features a great big play structure for kids to climb up, jump around and slide down. As a topper, there’s a shady canopy to prolong the joy and laughter.

  • GOLF
    CART PATHS

    You don’t need a round of 18 anymore. Cruise into convenience as you get around in your own golf cart via our well-placed paths. You will be delighted to use these routes inside the community to visit neighbors or quickly get to all the fun .

  • SMART
    HOMES

    Want to dim the lights? Change the temperature? Set the security? It’s so simple here. Once you download the app, you can adjust it all from across the room or across town. Your new home comes with smart controlled features already in place and of course you can always add more.

  • GREEN
    SPACE

    We believe that Green Space makes our neighborhoods special. A great place for events…or to kick the ball around…bring the pets…relax with a book…catch some sun…chase the kids…movie on the lawn…the list goes on and on.

  • LUSH
    LANDSCAPING

    Green grass, trees, plants and flowers run abundant at Metro Places with our beautiful landscape design but it extends to so much more than that. The landscape of our communities extends to our hard-scape plans too. With bridges, towers, upgraded street signs and light posts, winding roads that curve and elevate…the big and small details that make you feel a sense of neighborhood, a sense of special, a sense of home.
