IS A MASTER PLANNED COMMUNITY?
Landing in North Miami is a planned community. What
does this mean? Planned communities are wholly conceived
from the outset and have an organized development
plan as opposed to haphazard development that takes
place through time as a city's population grows.
Biscayne Landing build-out is expected to take more
than 10 years from inception, yet even at this early
stage in development, a detailed vision exists of
the finished project.
most communities in South Florida have grown in fits
and spurts based on a variety of variables from employment
opportunities to immigration laws to road construction,
Biscayne Landing will represent a steady planned progression
to its existence as a full-amenity community that
offers a quality lifestyle.
history of planned communities dates back to World
War II when Great Britain faced the daunting challenge
of rebuilding its cities after the urban destruction
that resulted from bombs during the war. At that time,
the choice was made to rebuild according to a plan,
rather than simply recreating the cities as they had
been originally developed.
success of the master-planned city concept resulted
in its gaining popularity in Europe and eventually
spread to the United States. Two of the original planned
communities were in Reston, Virginia and Columbia,
Maryland. In California, Foster City was soon followed
1973, there were over 50 planned cities in the United
States and others around the world. Hundreds of planned
communities exist now in populous cities everywhere,
and the concept has been continually been refined
communities typically develop around a pre-determined
threshold population level. This threshold serves
as the basis for determining the number of homes,
shops, recreational facilities, schools, roads, and
more to be built on the land and allows coordinated
development of these different elements.
planned nature of population growth allows neighborhoods
to develop intact and to purposefully avoid the commercial
thoroughfares that often divide neighborhoods in other
cities. Industrial and commercial development is kept
away from neighborhoods, and amenities and recreational
opportunities introduced. The result is a quality
of life that is difficult to achieve in unplanned
planned city is often more aesthetically pleasing
as well, following a cohesive architectural plan that
results in a unified look, orderly development, neighborhoods
that age better over time and property that appreciates
Landing is a master-planned community that will focus
on providing all the amenities and necessities for
its residents. The architecture of its different high-rises,
townhomes and buildings will have a similar style
and will blend with its natural environment.
addition to stores and restaurants on its site, Biscayne
Landing will have numerous recreational opportunities
in the form of jogging trails, swimming pools, playgrounds,
tennis courts, an environmental park and private access
to the 1000+ acre Oleta State Park.
Landing will also have its own schools. Children will
be able to attend its elementary school from kindergarten
to eighth grade, then progress to its charter high
school. Those students who wish to pursue college
can then attend Florida International University which
abuts the Biscayne Landing site.
Landing is destined to be a master-planned community
that sets new standards and levels of quality for
planned cities across the country. For more information
