The Premier 55+ Active Adult Retirement Community in Florida

On Top of the World Communities is an award-winning, family owned building and land development company founded in 1947 by patriarch, the late Sidney Colen. In 1975, he brought the family experience and vision to Ocala, Florida with the purchase of Circle Square Ranch, a continually working cattle ranch. The passion for creativity in land development and home building flows in the Colen blood. Kenneth Colen, Sidney’s son, never left his side as he grew up in the business and has led On Top of the World Communities since 1981, currently serving as President of all operations. Today, On Top of the World remains the oldest, privately owned land developer in the state of Florida.

  • I love living here, let me count the ways: My house is great! I take many classes and am still learning (so you CAN teach an old dog new tricks). The dog parks! Pools galore! What more does a person need?

  • We are delighted we chose On Top of the World and look forward to many more physically active, intellectually stimulating years!
