Master-planned communities are built with an imbued sense of connectivity and neighbourhood spirit. Established neighbourhoods typically build this kind of defined communal ecosystem over a number of years or even decades. In contrast, master-planned communities are designed as a neighbourhood from the outset, meaning residents can experience a true community spirit and a range of amenities close to their home as soon as they move in. 

 

The benefit of choice

One of the major perks of buying in a master-planned community is the array of options available. Master-planned communities generally offer three property options; newly built turnkey homes, off-the-plan home and land packages and off-the-plan custom builds. For those looking for more opportunity to customise their new home or flex their creative abilities, an off-the-plan home and land package or custom build would be the perfect choice!

Master-planned communities are designed to integrate residential areas with green infrastructure, urban amenities and facilities that enhance day-to-day living. Residents will also enjoy shorter travel times as daily necessities tend to be minutes from the doorstep. Many master-planned communities are also built with schools in close proximity to homes, making buying in a master-planned community an ideal option for young families.

With everything located so close to one another, residents of master-planned communities don’t need to stray too far for their daily essentials. This fosters a closer sense of connection and community amongst residents. Many master-planned community residents are young families, so invoking a sense of inclusion and a social, suburban lifestyle is a priority for many developers. 

For anyone looking to live in a neighbourhood designed to emphasise a sense of community and ease of accessibility to the most important amenities, living in a master-planned community may be the perfect option!
