OP - master planned communities aren't quite as common in this part of town and be within a 45 min commute. The only one I can think of is in Altadena right around where Loma Alta and Lincoln meet is a newer subdivision that's guard gated and full of ammenities. You might be able to find homes in the 1.1M+ range so this could be an option for you. Otherwise, a lot of new construction tends to be of communities that are small, just a few houses on a large lot that's been subdivided. OR alternatively, in that area we're seeing a lot of modern style PUD (planned urban developments) that have little in terms of yards. Would that still work for you? If so, I can think of another off the top of my head in the Atwater Village area and that could work.

Otherwise - La Canada Flintridge would probably be a budget buster. La Crescenta/Montrose will give you a little more for your money - but the foothills can be sleepy. Glendale would have a lot to do and fall within budget for newerish construction - but check demographics. That's all I can say and stay Fair Housing compliant (It's considered 'steering' to discuss ethnicity). Burbank would actually be high on my list in suggestions for you. Specifically the Magnolia Park area or in the hillside. Both are within the 45 min commute. Magnolia Park has great walkability and sense of community. The hillside has some newer properties and you might be able to find a master planned small sub up there. Maybe.

Let us know how it goes!

How far away is Silver Lake? Yes, there is a planned gated community on the top of Benton Way.

Good call! I was thinking of more newer construction, but that could definitely be an option as well.
