At Cedar Creek, we’re proud to provide Kansas City with its largest master-planned community. Over 1,200 families have found a new home in Cedar Creek, and many more will do so in the coming year.
Within a master-planned community – defined as a mix of residential homes and business parks – homeowners and families see a number of specific benefits that they may not find in other areas. What are some of these benefits? Let’s take a look.
A big part of the emphasis that goes into a master-planned community is variety. This isn’t a rote, standardized community where every house is built in the same way and an overhead view makes it looks like a Sims game.
No, a master-planned community will often feature a dozen or more different homebuilders, all with distinct styles. There will be a wide variety of homes and prices available, with a specific eye on making sure different styles and desires are met.
Master-planned communities will come with well-kept amenities that you often have to pay more for in other arrangements. These might include pools, athletic courts, fitness centers, club houses, or even the beautiful golf course that’s located in Cedar Creek.
For families and people looking for a great sense of community, a master-planned neighborhood is a great option. These communities come with well-lit streets, wide sidewalks, community gathering areas and more. Homes generally have nice front porches and other inviting elements.
Roadways and other forms of transportation are planned in advance for a given master-planned community. This ensures good traffic flow and a general lack of congestion, plus safety for children who play near roads.
A 2008 study found that the single most desired amenity in a community was nature trails, and these are a big part of a master-planned community. Areas like parks, sports fields, walking/hiking paths and many others are part of the planning that goes into a community.
