Lennar’s NextGen Home Design

Lennar Southeast Florida

Enabling Family Members to Coexist. Happily. With Independence.

Family is amazing and living all together can have many advantages…if you’re in the right home! Grandma and Grandpa are close at hand to help with the kids; you in turn can keep a watchful eye as they grow older. And if adult children would like to launch their careers before moving out, the prospect is heartwarming—assuming they have their own comfortable space!

Unfortunately, other than offering separate bedrooms, most homes aren’t designed to facilitate multi-generational living. Everybody is scrambled together—sharing the kitchen, living areas, laundry, and bathrooms—with a lack of privacy that could strain even the most harmonious relationships.

But Lennar’s NextGen® The Home Within a Home® design provides the perfect solution, incorporating a completely self-contained, private entry suite within the home, so family members can live side by side, yet with complete independence and autonomy.

The NextGen® offering couldn’t be timelier: recent research shows that 1 in 5 Americans currently lives in a multi-generational home. And that number continues to grow.

Even if you’re not accommodating a multi-generational family, having a separate suite for guests is a definite plus. They will appreciate the comfort of a private space where, for example, they can fix themselves a bite of breakfast without disturbing the rest of the household. NextGen® also adds value to your home, as a survey by the National Association of Realtors® showed 20% of buyers would pay more for a home with in-law quarters.

Two beautiful Lennar communities in Miami-Dade County offer NextGen® suites: the urban-chic Urbana in the heart of Doral’s trendy downtown, and AquaBella in Hialeah Gardens, a serene oasis designed around a magnificent lake.


City living doesn’t get better than Urbana, where residents can walk to world-class shopping, dining, and entertainment in South Florida’s new hot-spot, Doral. A stunning community of midrise condominium residences, as well as 2-story and 4-story townhomes, Urbana is rich in family-friendly amenities. The stylish clubhouse will feature a state-of-the-art fitness center, grand ballroom, meeting rooms, and more, as well as a sparkling pool.

Conceived with a completely self-sufficient NextGen®, private entry suite, Model MC is a contemporary condominium residence of two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The one-level home with balcony offers a split bedroom floorplan for maximum privacy, with the master suite and NextGen® area separated by the family room, dining room, and kitchen.

The nicely appointed NextGen® suite boasts a kitchenette, full bathroom with tub, accordion closet, and combined bedroom/living room. Accessibly priced from the mid $300s, Model MC is ideal for smaller families, as well as young professionals or college students seeking to share space.


Few families can resist AquaBella’s magnificent allure, with beautiful single-family homes, townhomes, and villas embracing tree-lined streets and an oversized lake. At this private community, there is something for every age group to love, from the indulgent pool and spa—reminiscent of a luxury hotel—and relaxing sundeck areas, to the exciting children’s water park and tot lot. The extravagant clubhouse features a party room, game room, and fully accessorized fitness center, as well stylishly decorated common areas where you can sip a drink with friends.

Part of The Waterways Collection at AquaBella, the Visola model is a single-family, 2-story home offering 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, garage, and patio from the mid $400s. Located on the ground floor, the luxe NextGen® suite has a bedroom, dedicated living room, bathroom with tub, kitchenette, private laundry facilities, and private entry with foyer.

Well suited for larger families, Visola offers three bedrooms upstairs, which include an inviting master suite.

Whether you need a smaller space, as at Urbana’s Model MC, or Visola’s more expansive quarters, we believe you’ll find the benefits of Lennar’s NextGen® suite are pretty sensational! This dream design solution holds the key to coexisting happily, as tight-knit—yet independent!—family members.
