Barron Collier Companies has been involved in several of the area’s recognized residential communities. Highlights of our residential portfolio may be found below.


Ave Maria, Florida

The creation of a new town, the first in modern times to be built in conjunction with a new University, speaks clearly to Barron Collier Companies’ vision for Southwest Florida. The first implementation of the groundbreaking Rural Lands Stewardship Program, Ave Maria stands as a testament to Barron Collier Companies’ commitment to environmental stewardship. By partnering with Domino’s Pizza magnate, Tom Monaghan, Barron Collier Companies was able to create a self-sustaining town encompassing 5,000 acres while setting aside additional 17,000 acres of environmentally important land for protection in perpetuity.

Ave Maria continues to thrive as the fastest-selling new home community in Southwest Florida, leading the path to responsible growth and development of Eastern Collier County. Click here to visit Ave Maria.



In addition to these outstanding properties, Barron Collier Companies also conceived, developed, or co-partnered other Florida communities including Grey Oaks Country Club, Pelican Bay, Pine Ridge Estates, Hawksridge, and Residences at Mercato.
