On Top of the World Communities
The Premier 55+ Active Adult Retirement Community in Florida

The retirement community in Florida of 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 of building the perfect retirement community 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, the On Top of the World retirement community in Florida remains the oldest, privately owned land developer in the state.

Furthermore, the On Top of the World retirement community in Florida is a leader in the industry both in recreational activities & amenities, and utilizing superior construction methods while building energy efficient homes.
