Blackton to Supply Flooring for The Villages’ Homes Coming to New Communities across 5,600 Acres in Wildwood, FL

Orlando, FL and Wildwood, FL --- Blackton, Inc., based in Orlando and one of the region’s largest and most active suppliers of materials to the homebuilding industry, will supply flooring materials for homes in new communities within the 5,600 acres The Villages Land Company LLC recently acquired from City of Wildwood.
Initially The Villages of Westlake will take shape within the acquired land on 1,115 acres which is approved for a 3,000-home development along the Florida Turnpike near the intersections of West CR 470 and SR 48. 
Blackton is currently supplying flooring to new homes at The Village of Fenney, one of the developer’s newest neighborhoods currently underway and adjacent to the recently acquired acreage.
Michael “Micky” Blackton, chairman and CEO of Blackton, Inc., said his family-owned business has been partnering with The Villages on both flooring and roofing for over a decade. 

“The Villages has been a loyal client and we look forward to supplying their needs in the years to come,” he said, adding “Active adults will continue to retire to Florida as they have for over a century. The Villages can supply them and we can supply The Villages.”
Ultimately 22,000 new homes will be built within the newly acquired 5,600 acres between CR 501 and the Turnpike south of CR 470, which includes several hundred acres earmarked for conservation.
The Villages retirement community comprising 34 square miles in Lake, Sumter and Marion Counties was ranked last year as the fastest growing U.S. metro area for the fourth year in a row by the U.S. Census Bureau.  The average price of a home in The Villages was at $259,700 as of April 30 according to the Zillow Home Value Index.
