A Genuine Wow Factor
We live in a world where there is constant advancement and a promise of the future. It is not always easy to identify the next big thing. But amongst all the chatter, an idea does take shape, and that’s when you know! You know you are witnessing the next chapter of true innovation, and it’s all happening right here in Pasco County!
Fastest Speeds = Coolest City
With the successful launch of ULTRAFi, Metro Development Group has created the first and only residential environment with up to an incredible 1 Gigabit of speed throughout our neighborhoods and available inside every home. This exclusive technology sets the framework for the Connected City and will boast an environment of Smart Homes, Smart Businesses and the most advanced schools, hospitals, libraries and commerce imaginable. We are proud to announce this area has been designated the prestigious honor of the 1st Smart Gigabit Community built from the ground up in the country by US Ignite.
The World's Top Amenity!
At the epicenter of the Connected City are two new expansive communities, Epperson and Mirada. At the heart of these communities, each will have a Metro Lagoon ranging in size from 7.5 to over 15 acres. These Lagoons will forever change the way you view coastal living in the beautiful sunny state of Florida.
We have brought the best of the coastline inland to Pasco County where each will be surrounded by shores of resort-style fun, beauty and tropical relaxation. Epperson Lagoon is open to residents and limited public access and Mirada Lagoon is anticipated to open in Spring 2022.
21st Century Health + Wellness
Developing the first and only Smart Gigabit Community in the United States means the Connected City is uniquely positioned to offer the most advanced healthcare system ever imagined. The Connected City will be a national showcase for modern health and wellness as we capitalize on the latest technology and bring healthcare into the 21st century. Imagine the advantage of bringing the digital world and physical world together, all to the benefit of those living in and near the Connected City. In a place that believes "Health is the New Wealth," it is time to invest, reinvent and improve the notion of health and wellness.
We look forward to unveiling the name of this distinctive area and will share exciting updates, examples and details of this forward-thinking development.
We are excited to announce our partnership with Advent Health!
Life just got brighter! Innovation lives here, and so should you! Streetleaf, is available at select MetroPlaces communities and is the first-of-its-kind solar streetlight system in the nation. Streetleaf delivers more than modern appeal and nighttime security; it saves energy and does not rely on a power grid which reduces dependence on conventional utilities. This intelligent technology will automatically reduce output (dim) during inactivity and power to full strength when detecting a person or vehicle. Streetleaf is only one of the many reasons Epperson is such a unique and special place to call home.
Not only higher education, but better education. Connected City will be the enviable model for 21st century learning from inside the classroom and virtually around the world. InPrep, a new tuition-free charter K-8 school, has integrated a future now approach with the WISH model focusing on Wellness, Innovation, Science and Health.
Both communities feature wide-format, multi-modal trails to accommodate foot traffic and electric vehicles: city planning and roadways specifically designed with you in mind. No longer science fiction, the Connected City means a genuinely modern, innovative, and fun way to get from Point A to Point B.
The fastest internet and WiFi speeds in the nation means that our commitment to trails, green space, passive parks, and major amenities does not mean a departure from your digital connections.
