Industry Expert Review

The community is a high density neighborhood with almost 2000 homes. However the land planners did a good job in incorporating as many cul-de-sacs, and curved streets as possible to eliminate that grid or cookie cutter appearance when driving the community.  Also they made us of a large loop road or central landscaped boulevard with no homes facing it, which makes for a nice impression in a large community.
