It’s easy to feel disconnected from others in today’s world. That’s one reason that clustered communities known as pocket neighborhoods have become so popular in the past 20 years. Pocket neighborhoods are designed to promote interaction and accessibility between neighbors, helping build friendships and a strong sense of community.
Their Appeal? A more caring, supportive and connected place to call home.
Each home within a pocket neighborhood is uniquely designed to maximize space without being excessive in size. Residents interact on a daily basis around a shared garden, quiet street, clubhouse or courtyard, while still be afforded the privacy of their own space. Homes are designed to ensure privacy with careful window placement and plenty of personal space. The shared outdoor area provides a welcoming view of lush green spaces over the typical cars and bustling streets one may be used to.
The shared outdoor space is at the center of the pocket neighborhood experience. During the daily flow of life, neighbors can share welcoming hello’s or stop for porchside chats. These daily interactions can grow into lasting relationships and contribute to a more meaningful sense of community.
