The development name means to surpass or excel in Latin.
The properties include stylish two bedroom coach house-style apartments which are available from £144,995, with two bedroom houses costing £154,995.
Also available at the Praecedo development, which means to surpass or excel in Latin, are a number of three and four bedroom homes. They can be snapped up from £194,995 and £234,995 respectively.
The name of the development pays homage to the town's famous Roman heritage, as it was here that Emperor Claudius received the surrender of celtic kings to form the Roman Province of Britannia.
Michael O'Leary, regional sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey, said: "These fabulous new homes offer all the convenience and quality buyers expect from an upmarket contemporary home - and when you add our great value prices to the equation, it's not hard to understand Praecedo's popularity with Colchester's more savvy home buyers."
