I am new to this area and looking at this area around the McFarland Pkwy and Union-Hill road intersection on Exit 12B, I think this area looks a lot under-developed compared to the East of 400(Exit 12A) and north(Exit 13). There were couple of schools coming up in this area(Brandywine Elementary and Desena Middle school). The roads are too narrow, no street lights which makes the area too scary to travel at nights. I can tell that the home prices also are a bit on the lower side compared to the neighbourhoods in 12a and exit 13. Can someone please tell me the reason why this area is on the back foot compared to the other surrounding areas?. Is it a good place to buy a home?. Is there any potential for any growth in this area?. Thanks..

That area feels more industrial, so it may have something to do with zoning.

Good question- it certainly is different from the area north, east, and even south (Windward)

if you get down union hill rd towards windward, There are a few nice sub/divisions along the Union Hill rd.

McFarland itself is zoned for Lite Ind/Office/Comm.

I think there is a plan for union hill rd from McFarland to McGinnis Ferry Road to be 4 lanes.

So, Do you think the area is going to stay the same for some more years?. I mean are there any chances of new neighborhoods coming up, any new offices coming up in the area...
