For the 11th year in a row, Lennar was the biggest homebuilder in the Twin Cities metro last year, according to the annual ranking by the Builders Association of the Twin Cities.
Those rankings are based on annual gross revenue based on sales of for-sale housing.
In 2016, Lennar built 519 single-family and 63 multifamily homes and reported gross revenue of $262 million. “By understanding what features today’s buyers want in their new homes, we are able to build their dream homes,” Bill Burgess, division president for Lennar, said in a statement.
The rest of the top 10 were:
2. CalAtlantic Homes, 503 units, $190 million revenue
3. PulteGroup, 373 units, $177 million revenue
4. D.R. Horton, 350 units, $155 million revenue
5. Mattamy Homes, 280 units, $110 million revenue
6. Hanson Builders, 114 units, $81 million revenue
7. Robert Thomas Homes, 127 units, $69 million revenue
8. M/I Homes, 144 units, $57 million revenue
9. Gonyea Homes, 59 units, $52 million revenue
10. Eternity Homes, 100 units, $50 million revenue
The annual list is based on information solicited via a voluntary survey. It doesn’t include commercial construction firms building rental or senior housing. Several large homebuilders that might have made the list declined to participate. They included Kootenia Homes, Fieldstone Family Homes, Inc., Streeter & Associates, Paul Emmerich Construction, John Kraemer & Sons, Castle Gate Construction and Swanson Homes.
