Building a community is important to our human survival and can help us during positive and negative times. Home communities can give you a more secure neighborhood to raise your family in, and can be better maintained than other areas. Building master plan communities comes with considerations like how many residential and commercial amenities to include, how the landscape should look, transportation, regulations for residents, and more.
Premier Utah Real Estate can help create master plan communities around the state of Utah that can improve the environment and give residents a better quality of life. Below is some more information on what these communities look like across the U.S.
What Are Master Plan Communities?
The large-scale developments of master plan communities are carefully curated living and recreating spaces that can help bring communities together and make living much easier. Many planned communities include a mix of residential homes, restaurants, stores, and schools. Some developments have their own schools that all the residents in the development attend.
Dedicated playgrounds, green spaces, pools, or tennis courts, also make an appearance in master plan communities. They are usually based at the edges of urban centers and can often be included in HOAs. There are many different examples of master-planned communities that we can look to for the benefits and inspiration to create a stunning place to live. One of the main benefits of choosing a master plan community is that there is everything you need right inside your backyard. Resources, recreation, and volunteer opportunities are all within close proximity to your home.
1- Sterling Grove, Surprise, Arizona
Our first example of a master plan community is Sterling Grove, which offers a sophisticated and modern living area. The scenery of Arizona is picturesque and offers many resources for those that live around the community. They were named the Master Plan Community of the Year in 2022 for their collaboration of design and nature.
This community has single-family homes, a golf club, pools, tennis courts, and high-class restaurants. Surprise, Arizona, hosts the Kansas City Royals and Texas Rangers for spring training and is an entertainment-heavy city. This gives residents a fun environment with mild weather to enjoy year-round.
2- Mirlon, Palm Springs, California
If you are looking for a stylish modern home, Mirlon is the community for you. The master plan community has an artsy and eclectic atmosphere that it’s residents love. The land of Mirlon weaves through the Palm Springs landscape and offers residents multiple acres of trails, olive trees, lakes, and dog parks. Making the most of the California outdoors is made possible in master plan communities.
The clean and simply designed homes are selling quickly and the median price is around $800,000. Most of the homes are designed with lots of natural light, and sharp lines, and help create a lifestyle of elegance.
3- Daybreak, South Jordan, Utah
Looking for a diverse lifestyle with stunning scenery in all seasons, check out Daybreak, Utah! The winner of Master Plan Community of the Year in 2019, Daybreak encourages outdoor activities, green and sustainable solutions, and education. There are many different styles of home in Daybreak (over 100 home plans) that can fit a variety of family sizes.
The community believes that your backyard should extend beyond your fence. The bike path, outdoor concert venue, local businesses, and your neighborhood should feel safe and make up your backyard. As the location of Daybreak continues to grow, the amenities continue to expand, so whether your style is more chai over coffee, or biking over bus, Daybreak has something for you.
4- Ward Village, Honolulu, Hawaii
60 acres along the coast of Waikiki gives residents a connection to the sea and island living, combined with urban luxuries. The stunning ocean views combined with large-scale architecture helped Ward Village be named the Master Plan Community of the Year in 2018.
The community supports initiatives that honor the culture and history of Hawai’i’. While the community does have homes and other commercial buildings it works hard to provide profound respect for the land and implements environmental efforts into all projects. Multiple parks, a thriving art scene, and recreational lessons give residents a well-rounded experience.
5- Mission Ridge, El Paso, Texas
The Desert landscape, short travel to the airport, and friendly neighbors are just some of the things you can expect from Mission Ridge. The community has many walking trails and vistas for people to enjoy each day and each AT&T offers fiber optic internet for residents in Mission Ridge. Mission Ridge is also only 5 minutes from most stores, 7 minutes from hospitals and medical resources, and 20 minutes from the airport.
The architecture of homes and commercial buildings helps to enhance the scenery of Texas but green spaces for children and pets were also included in the master plan communities to break up the desert soil.
