there is development with this thematic approach in DFW area in North Richland Hills called Home Town--David Weekley development for the most part--some smaller builders--
Welcome to Hometown NRH
problems are the use of alleys (which is not how most developments in this area are done) uses lot size and shrinks the lot--most of ones in Home Town as less than .25 acres--that makes for tight quarters and lack of privacy in back yards...
the streets are also narrower since the developer did not want to lose out on homes/lots vs wider streets--there is no way to park off-street...with visitors parking on side of street, the visibility and driving is not the best--
especially when you consider that there are younger kids on bikes and playing in the yards to watch out for...

From the website it reminds me of the new Tucker Hill development in West McKinney (which is not on a hill at all.....more down in a gulley (or maybe a valley).

I grew up in that area of Lubbock (it was rural at the time), went to school at Lubbock-Cooper all my life. The area is poised for growth and appreciating real estate values. The school district is becoming the most coveted of the area.

I would recommend this neighborhood, or any of the nearby new developments. If you are going to live in Lubbock.

These big developments are becoming more of the norm, but they are very common in Austin-Round Rock area. This is a new concept to Lubbock, but as a real estate agent, I can tell you, that HOA's, if you are willing to do it, will keep the neighborhood values up.

I think this is good thing for Lubbock, I would welcome it if I still lived there.

Default Looks Nice to Me

We, in Tyler have a similar development called "Bellwood" planned on 500 plus acres by a Chandler Arizona developer if it happens will take 5 of more years to finish up to 3,200 living units - More of a complete town center concept. It is to be next to a current new devlopment called The Cascades of East Texas which has a 12 story condo, many million dollar homes, golf cousrse, Jack Nicholas Golf Academy, lake, townhomes etc . Next to that is a 20 resort/convention conference center planned with a 9 story 4-star hotel - oh, we are talking about Lubbock.
This Lubbock plan looks interesting

Hey, now. Resorts in Lubbock are certainly not too far behind, especially when things start cooking at Reese. This new Vintage Township will be the first, but definitely not the last, master-planned new work of its kind.
