Collier Enterprises is nationally recognized for creating communities and clubs of quality, style and environmental sensitivity. Our development approach has won awards from organizations including Audubon International and the Council for Sustainable Florida.
The Isles of Collier Preserve
Collier Enterprises completed the sale of its former Sabal Bay property to Minto Communities in late 2012 after updating entitlements based on input from the community. The Isles of Collier Preserve, located in South Naples just minutes from Fifth Avenue is a lakes community offering 1,600 homes including estate, single family, coach and other multifamily options. Minto is creating a community where residents enjoy an active lifestyle with health and wellness related amenities such as hiking/biking trails, kayaking and a clubhouse with resort style pool, all conveniently located near offices and retail shops, including a Publix-anchored shopping center. The environment has always been a high priority for Minto and the Isles of Collier Preserve is no exception – Minto has carefully integrated and protected the environment in this exciting new active lifestyle community.

Rural Lands West
Collier Enterprises is working with Minto Communities on planning and permitting activities for Rural Lands West, a new community located in eastern Collier County. We are also in discussions with Minto as a key developer in the first phase of the community.
Formerly known as the Town of Big Cypress, the Rural Lands West community will be located next to Golden Gate Estates at Oil Well Road on land that has been farmed for decades. Rural Lands West will be permitted locally under Collier County’s nationally recognized Rural Lands Stewardship (RLS) program. The name “Rural Lands West” is simply a permitting name reflecting the location of the property along the western boundary of the 200,000 acre RLS area in eastern Collier County. The actual name of the community will be selected during the planning and permitting process. Under the RLS guidelines, for every acre developed, Rural Lands West will provide approximately three acres of preservation land, including sensitive wetlands, major flow ways, wildlife habitat and other natural ecosystems. Rural Lands West preservation will include thousands of acres within the Camp Keais Strand, helping to complete the preservation of a key corridor for the endangered Florida panther and permanently connecting the CREW lands to the north with the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge to the south.
It is anticipated that the initial phase of the Rural Lands West community undertaken by Minto will include approximately 4,000 residential homes and a 150,000 square foot town center. Additional commercial development will include office, manufacturing, retail, dining, recreation and entertainment options, healthcare, schools, civic and cultural facilities. Future phases, planned to occur over the next 15-20 years, will bring the community to a total of up to 10,000 residential homes and 1.9 million square feet of commercial space on approximately 4,000 acres of land.
The permitting process will involve local, state and federal agencies, and is estimated to take two to three years to complete. Collier Enterprises will be working closely with county staff and neighbors during the permitting process. First residences in Phase I are expected to be available in 2018.

Collier's Reserve, a private, member-owned country club community of 224 homes, is located along the Cocohatchee River, one of Collier County's most scenic natural waterways. The approximately 450 acres of Collier's Reserve (owned by the Collier family for 70 years before development) are among the most picturesque in Florida. The Collier's Reserve Country Club was the first Audubon Signature Cooperative Sanctuary in the world and remains a peaceful refuge for both people and wildlife.
