Massive Expansion Coming to Wellness Way in Clermont

By Yasmene Warren

Big developments are coming to Wellness Way in Clermont, and we think it has the potential to be the next Horizon West. The neighborhood is set to expand tremendously, including new communities and road additions.

Keep reading to see what’s coming, or watch a clip from one of our recent YouTube videos below - between 10:35-14:30!

What’s Expected for Wellness Way?

Developers of Wellness Way hope to transform the Clermont area into a high-tech and high-wage industry hub, as well as strengthen the connections they have with other hubs in the area. With this will come new housing, wellness, and employment opportunities for this area of Central Florida.

General Wellness Way Area

This nearly 16,000-acre development was initially established in 2016, and since then, there have been a multitude of developments in the works.

The Olympus Master Development is one community that will be dedicated to promoting health and wellness. Clermont is known as the “Choice of Champions” due to the number of athletes who train at the National Training Center, so this makes the perfect addition to Wellness Way - including 3.5 miles of paved trails, boardwalks, piers, and 20+ parks.

Olympus recently built a variety of apartments and single-family townhomes, as well as partnered with three companies that will greatly shape the community’s sports campus. You can read more about this project here!

Site plan by VHB

The City of Clermont also recently approved rezoning and the annexation of a Lennar Homes active adult community in Wellness Way - called Wellness Ridge. A total of 699 age-restricted units, made up of 7 unique home collections, will be added to this master planned community.

In addition to this, there will be 15 acres of land on this site allotted for a two-story elementary school site. An alternative plan also includes a site for a high school, and construction costs may run well over $100 million.

These plans call for 228,612 square feet of non-residential uses, including a 150,000 square foot shopping plaza.

Active Adult Communities

In the Lake County and surrounding Central Florida areas, there are presently only a handful of active adult communities, so there is lots of room for opportunity within Wellness Way to expand and offer more of these. Most Florida residents are familiar with the Del Webb community in Davenport and The Villages in Lake and Sumter counties.

Currently in Horizon West, there’s the Del Webb Oasis active adult community. Now, to meet with the demand, builders are taking advantage of the space on the west side to build more active adult communities.


Wellness Way has a lot in store for both Central Florida and interested buyers. With it being set to become the new hub for all things high-tech, this development will open up opportunities for everyone. The demand for homes in Central Florida grows greater by the minute, and Wellness Way is well on its way to meeting that demand. If you want to be a part of what’s to come, let our team help you find your next home!
