Visualforce page rendered a PDF not keeping the format from Text Area field

I created a visualforce page that renders as a PDF from a custom object. I have a text area field (Description__c) that is on the VF page to be displayed. My issue is when the page is generated, the visuaforce page changes the format of the text in the text are field by bunching it together as if it is one large paragraph. 

Example Text Area field:
Demo, LLC would like to announce the following projects:
* Home Improvements
* IT Refresh
* Interior Renovation

Visualforce Page Output:
Demo, LLC would like to announce the following projects:* Home Improvements * IT Refresh* Interior Renovation

How can I fix this?
