Babcock 1

On April 4, 2006, the Charlotte County Board of County Commissioners (Board) approved the Babcock Ranch Development of Regional Impact.

The Babcock Ranch DRI consists of approximately 13,630 acres, and it is located in the southeastern portion of the County, immediately north of the Lee County border. Babcock Ranch DRI envisions a sustainable community based on a hierarchy of compact interconnected and environmentally sensitive development types in which the residential neighborhood would be the basic development unit. The combination of several residential neighborhoods with one or more neighborhood commercial centers would form a Hamlet or Village. The aggregate Villages and Hamlets would support and be served by a Town Center which would not only provide the main shopping, employment, and entertainment/culture opportunities but would also offer an urban residential environment.

The Babcock Ranch DRI is approved for:

  • 17,870 residential units
  • 2,925,943 square feet of retail
  • 2,064,057 square feet of office
  • 600 hotel rooms
  • 650,000 square feet of industrial
  • 177 hospital beds
  • 418 units of assisted living facilities
  • 54 hole golf course aggregate
