Cooper Communities Incorporated (CCI), the original founder and developer of Hot Springs Village (HSV) since 1972, has decided to offer for sale various parcels of land within the community. In doing so, Cooper will be continuing its long-standing plan of allowing HSV to become more autonomous in its growth. It also provides exciting opportunities for other commercial developers and home builders to expand the amenities and offerings within this community known as America’s largest gated community. 

Jody Latham, President of Cooper’s Land Development division stated, “We believe the time is right to offer these prime locations for sale within HSV to satisfy the demand we are beginning to see for additional commercial and residential growth. We have received many inquires over the past years to sell these properties and timing is very important. The national and local economy is doing well and HSV is likewise positioned to absorb the growth and development that these properties will provide.” 

Some properties that have been listed include neighborhoods such as Pacifica Villas. Formally part of the Townhouse Association, Pacifica Villas is a prime location for any builder to purchase platted home sites and take advantage of the possibility to complete the remaining portion of this neighborhood. Other properties include areas such as the Cortez Beach Island. This unique property could be acquired by the HSV Property Owners Association and continue as an attractive community amenity or it could be sold for prime home locations or condominiums. Other locations at the East and West gate provide a unique opportunity for commercial development and are situated on main thoroughfares like Desoto Blvd. One such property includes the Cumbre Subdivision, a 55 acre property adjacent to the East Gate. Once considered a prime location for a luxury Motorcoach Resort, this property has virtually unlimited potential as a neighborhood, conference center, lodge or any number of residential or commercial uses. In total, over 64 properties within Hot Springs Village are available for purchase from Cooper Communities. 

Cooper Communities has recently rolled out Phase III of Maderas Gardens. This very popular neighborhood adjacent to Diamante Country Club, offers single family detached garden homes with lawn care and exterior maintenance included for all residence. “We are offering exciting new exterior designs and floor plans that represent today’s home buyer,” said Latham. Those looking for a more manageable home size but with all the updated style features and community amenities will find Maderas Gardens Phase III an exciting alternative. These homes are being offered with varying levels of upgrade packages and with a base price in the low $200’s.
