GL Homes has come a long way from its humble beginnings in 1976.

Today, GL Homes is the 13th largest private homebuilder in the United States. That’s a ranking based on the measure that counts the most: sales. And the bottom line is GL Homes has carved out a reputation among home buyers for sustained excellence.

GL’s reputation is such, that when it announces a new project there’s immediate interest and buzz, especially among those who own or have owned a home in a GL community.

GL Homes’ new community “The Bridges” ( http://www.glhomes.com/the-bridges )  has sparked a lot of word of mouth publicity. Located less than a mile from the new Delray Marketplace, a retail and entertainment center, The Bridges is a high-end luxury product that has earned rave reviews from those who have toured the models.

“It’s absolutely magnificent,” says Fran Goldman, who lives in a GL community in Lake Worth. “They’ve reached a whole new level.”

The Bridges features 21 distinct home designs ranging in size from 2,450 square feet to over 7,506 air conditioned square feet with one- and two-story plans. Luxury features include granite kitchen countertops, Moen sinks, marble bathroom countertops and too many amenities to mention.

In typical fashion, The Bridges includes outstanding community features such as a 17,000 square foot clubhouse, with a large social hall, catering kitchen, yoga studio and fully equipped fitness studio.

The clubhouse will also offer a card salon with poker tables, a gaming room and a children’s center. The poolside bistro will give residents a casual place to grab a snack while enjoying the great outdoors. The resort-style swimming pool and spa will be surrounded by a spacious pool deck and shade cabanas. Children who live at The Bridges will be able to enjoy an aqua lot, wading pool and shaded playground adjacent to a large party pavilion.
