Cookie Cutter Residential Development

I have been digitising the building foot prints layer for a few weeks now. I've finally come across some of the newer residential developments in our jursidiction. This master planned development is shocking!

I can't believe the developers would do this. Every house in the master plan uses the same design! It makes my job easier but I can only shake my head seeing this kind of lazy development in 2019.

This is a senior living community in North Richmond.

I think they should have just built medium density housing if they were going to be lazy. It would be a better use of space! What can you do with that tiny courtyard? It'll be overshadowed by your neighbour's home anyway!


One design for everyone!


Urban design has really gone down hill!
