Epperson Has All

For A Great Life™

  • AWARD-WINNING
    COMMUNITIES

    We are extremely proud to feature some of the area’s most sought-after and Award-Winning communities! Metro is honored to have won high accolades for its amenities, homes, events, technology, people, innovation, marketing and more. Most notably we won the TBBA 2018 Master Planned Community of the Year! At Metro we are committed to always be the Gold Standard in the Development of Master Planned Communities.

  • METRO
    LAGOONS

    Metro Places is proud to be the FIRST to offer the world’s top amenity to the U.S.! The introduction of Metro Lagoons by Crystal Lagoons® will forever change the way you view tropical living in the beautiful sunny state of Florida. We have brought the best of the coastline to some of the most rapidly growing and sought after communities, with crystal clear blue waters that span in size from 5 acres to over 15 acres. One Metro Lagoon NOW OPEN at Epperson, three more under development and more being announced soon… each Lagoon is surrounded by shores of resort-style fun, cabanas, bars and sandy beaches. For more information including Limited Day Passes, click here.

  • FASTEST
    WiFi

    Becoming a homeowner in an ULTRAFi Community means enjoying the fastest internet and WiFi speeds in North America! Enjoy up to 1 Gigabit of speed throughout the community and even choose up to 1 Gigabit of speed at home. Get ready to play, watch, game, surf and stream without delays or disruptions by the pool, on the trails, at the playground and right inside your home. Only available here, in select Metro Places communities.

  • CHARTER
    ACADEMIES

    Some Metro Places communities feature K-8 schools by Charter Schools USA which operates high quality schools with an unwavering dedication to student achievement. These nearby or in-community schools provide a choice for parents, students and teachers since these schools have received the SACS CASI (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement) accreditation seal, meaning that all of its current schools are accredited. To learn more please visit CharterSchoolsUSA.com

  • METRO
    iLights

    Life just got brighter! We are thrilled to announce the launch of Metro iLights by Metro Development Group and exclusive to their select Metro Places communities. These have been installed as the first-of-its-kind Smart Solar Street Lights in the USA! The smart technology can auto dim during inactivity and automatically go to full strength when someone walks or drives by. The lights are eco-friendly because of their low energy usage and because they do not disturb nocturnal wildlife. Coolest part is they can be managed remotely from a smartphone which makes these the perfect lights for our growing Connected City. Innovation lives here!

  • GOLF
    CART PATHS

    You don’t need to hit a round of 18 to enjoy the coolest mode of transportation. With Golf Cart Paths in select Metro Places communities, you can enjoy the fun and convenience of getting around in your own golf cart via our well-placed paths. You will be delighted to use these routes inside the communities to visit neighbors or to easily get to the dog park, crystal clear Metro Lagoon and your future clubhouse!

  • LUSH
    LANDSCAPING

    Green grass, trees, plants and flowers run abundant at Metro Places with our beautiful landscape design but it extends to so much more than that. The landscape of our communities extends to our hard-scape plans too. With bridges, towers, upgraded street signs and light posts, winding roads that curve and elevate…the big and small details that make you feel a sense of neighborhood, a sense of special, a sense of home.

  • METRO
    GOES PLACES

    Introducing our newest team member, mascot and best buddy traveler – METRO. This friendly little guy loves to explore all things Metro Places, Metro Lagoons (with special employee pass) and all of Tampa Bay! We definitely live in the best city and area in the world and METRO is more than happy to check it all out and post his adventures on social media as he goes from Wesley Chapel, Downtown Tampa, Southern Hillsborough, Bradenton and all points in between. If you see him, be sure to say hello! Follow METRO @MetroGoesPlaces

  • Community Events

    COMMUNITY
    EVENTS

    One of the things that make Metro Places so special is not just the word “community” as a collection of houses, but a sense of community where neighbors come together as friends. Community Events range from socials by the Lagoon to gatherings with the kids, costume contests for Halloween, and fun times during Fourth of July, Labor Day and more! Events vary by community.

  • GATED
    ENTRY

    Metro Places that include the key-icon in their amenity package mean that they are part of a gated enclave of homes. With remote access for themselves and call-in access for visitors, homeowners can enjoy this added benefit and peace of mind. Regardless of whether or not the community entry is gated, all of our clubhouses and pool areas are gated areas and are restricted to residents-only with exclusive key-fob access.

  • MILES
    OF TRAILS

    Our exciting trail system covers several miles around the community, and connects with several destinations outside our walls. Perfect for walkers, runners, hikers and bikers. Whatever your escape route, you’ll discover lots of fun points of interest along the way.

  • SMART
    HOMES

    Every home in our ULTRAFi communities is built to be a Smart Home. Want to dim the lights? Change the temperature? Set the security? It’s so simple here in an ULTRAFi Community. Once you download the app, you can adjust it all from across the room or across town. Your new home comes with smart controlled features already in place and of course you can always add more — up to you if you want a few switches and cameras or a full suite of smart home automation.

    To learn more about Smart Homes, click here.

  • GREEN
    SPACE

    Some of our communities have a traditional Landing. Others have Passive Parks — whatever you call it we are just so happy to have these areas in our communities. Metro Places believes that aside from homes and amenities, that Green Space goes a long way to make our neighborhoods special. A great place for our events…or to kick the ball around…bring the pets…relax with a book…catch some sun…tumble with the kids…movie on the lawn…the list goes on and on.

  • AUTONOMOUS
    PATHS

    Roads, routes and paths designed exclusively for autonomous cars, golf carts and eventually for our planned in-community shuttles. These paths will pave the way in our new tech-advanced Connected City. For an entire city built around the promise of the future, we have already mapped out these roads for autonomous technology.

  • DOG
    PARK

    When we designed our communities, we thought about all of our residents. Even the pooches. So the off-leash Dog Park we’ve designed for your loyal and obedient friends is the place to let them run wild. Lots of cool shade and places to keep them hydrated on hot days. They’ll be sitting up and begging you to take them there everyday.

  • TOP
    BUILDERS

    A big part of what makes Metro Places so great is our awesome builders. Top Builders means homes built by award-winning builders with a focus on the best of design, eco-friendly features, attractive pricing and friendly, helpful sales agents. With many floor plans and front elevations to choose from and with Metro Places being communities with multi-builders, we keep our communities from looking “cookie-cutter” but still uniform in overall style which is ideal for your new living environment.

  • BUTTERFLY
    GARDEN

    The Butterfly Garden creates a beautiful and peaceful space that anyone can enjoy! It’s an easy way to see more butterflies and to help them thrive by creating a garden that is surrounded with colorful, vibrant flowers and plants the butterflies can feed and lay eggs on. Stroll through the Butterfly Garden to experience the butterfly effect!

  • WELLNESS
    WAY

    Whether it is a commitment to a healthy lifestyle with our active amenities or plans for an onsite HealthPlex, Metro Places is committed to promoting a wellness-focused environment right inside your community.  Metro Places features a mix of premier elements like Lagoons, walking/biking trails, fitness stations, tot lots, sports courts and green space to get you outdoors and feeling your best. The upcoming Connected City has plans to feature an impressive HealthPlex which will take advantage of ULTRAFi technology in bringing healthcare to the 21st century. We believe in the motto that “health is the new wealth” and it is time to reinvent, reimagine and improve on the concept of healthy living

  • WIFI
    PARKS

    The fastest internet and WiFi speeds in the nation with our exclusive ULTRAFi technology means that our commitment to green space and passive parks does not mean a departure from your digital connections. Enjoy the great outdoors all the while being in touch with your digital world of videos, social media, emails and streaming music. Best part is, this is part of your community-wide WiFi so no worrying about your data plan.

  • CONNECTED
    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, transit and commerce imaginable. The Connected City will feature two communities, Epperson and Mirada – each with a multi-acre Crystal Lagoons amenity!

  • METROSPRESSO
    CAFÉ

    Espresso yourself! We love coffee and so are really excited to unveil our newest venture, an onsite Metro Places coffee truck that we have named Metrospresso!

The-Heritage

The History Of Epperson Ranch

Steeped in rich, Florida history is the property formally known as Epperson Ranch. This idyllic piece of landscape in Pasco County was in the Epperson family for four generations and was traditionally used for the farming of livestock and various crops. In honor of the family name and with respect to the beauty that surrounds this area we thought it most fitting to call our newest community Epperson. As the land was always deemed a place for economic and development growth, the Epperson family was thoughtful in having Metro Places realize a dream of not simply converting the area to pavement and houses, but igniting this area for jobs, education, healthcare and a true 21st century model of living.
