Wynlakes Vision Complete

Wynlakes Vision Complete

MONTGOMERY, AL | September 13, 2022 – Wynlakes, a planned residential community, began its development life in the mid 1980’s and continues today as a marquis project in Montgomery, Alabama.  Developed by Jim Wilson & Associates, and guided by the inspiration of Jim Wilson, Jr., Wynlakes includes over 1,000 single family homes and the excellent Wynlakes Golf and Country Club.  Over the years contiguous parcels of land were added to the initial development plan as demand for new home sites within a gated community continued.  In August a special real estate closing took place as the Developer sold the last lot in its inventory.  While a few lots are still around without homes, those are owned by individuals waiting to build.

In Montgomery, Alabama, and arguable in the entire state of Alabama, Wynlakes has become the gold benchmark of planned residential communities.  Beautiful homes from 1,500 to 15,000 square feet are found in the development, each uniquely designed, approved and built.  Marketed as a work of art, Wynlakes has firmly established itself as a residential masterpiece.
