In an area that used to be full of orange groves, Palm Beach County's newest city is booming as the place where young families are settling. Since it became a city in 2016, the city has grown by absorbing another 200 acres (bringing the total size to 4,000 acres) with a plan for 4,500 homes.
The city features shopping centers, a hospital, resort style amenities, a calendar of community events and more. At the heart of the city will be a vibrant Town Center, a shopping community where residents can meet, dine, shop and see live music.
Westlake got its name in part from Weston, the western Broward suburb of upscale, gated neighborhoods that also grew from one developer and a master plan. Minto Communities purchased the land in 2013 for 51 million and created the city from scratch. This is the same developer behind other planned communities such as Tradition in Port St Lucie.
The second part of its name is from its proximity to Lake Okeechobee, as the city is just 6 miles north of Southern Blvd, west of Royal Palm Beach and north of Wellington.
