Our History and Our Story.

As the premier 55+ active adult 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.

Kenneth’s leadership brings you peace of mind. On Top of the World Communities is a debt free company that you can count on to be here for you! We have been making new home dreams come true for over 65 years for more than 50,000 home buyers. The Colens have mastered the design of a well-built, intimate, quiet, amenity rich community with solid management. Our management team has over 100 years combined experience, proving our dedication to the heart and loyalty to your dreams is big at On Top of the World Communities. Listen to Ken Colen discuss how On Top of the World came to be.
