Manatee Fruit to Develop Lake Flores

we’ve known this was coming, even before the announcement. Couldn’t be too long before Whiting Preston cashed in on his massive land tracts in southwest Manatee County.

And now we know: It’s named Lake Flores, with a host of homes, commercial development and recreational venues, all to take about 20 years or so to build out. Kind of a Lakewood Ranch for the Cortez Road at 75th Street West neighborhood.

Recent articles in both the Bradenton Herald (Here) and the Sarasota Herald-Tribune (Here) flesh out the story of what will likely become a traffic and service nightmare, particularly for drivers heading to Anna Maria Island.
