Lennar remains largest home builder in Twin Cities metro


Lennar-Minneapolis/St. Paul was the top ranked builder in the Twin Cities metro once again last year, according to the annual ranking released by the Builders Association of the Twin Cities.

The Business Journal says Lennar completed 441 homes in 2012 and reported gross revenue of nearly $160 million -- up from $114 million the year before.

“Lennar is honored to be named the Twin Cities Number One Home builder for the seventh consecutive year,” Bill Burgess, Minnesota Division President, said in a statement. “We appreciate that every year more home buyers are recognizing the Lennar difference — great neighborhoods, innovative designs, and luxury-included features, all designed around your families’ future.”

Lennar has held the top spot of the annual ranking since 2006.

The Pulte Group, Ryland Homes-Twin Cities Division, D.R. Horton-Minnesota and Mattamy Homes rounded out the top five. All five builders are national firms with corporate offices located outside of Minnesota.
