EYA has long been a proponent of life within walking distance, in which homeowners enjoy easy access to transportation, recreation, shopping, and dining. And increasingly, new homeowners are seeking walkable lifestyles even in the suburbs.
A new report by the Urban Land Institute (ULI) states that over the next decade, the majority of households will be drawn to neighborhoods that combine the best of both urban and suburban living. These new “surban” neighborhoods offer urban amenities such as smaller homes with less maintenance and easy access to shopping and dining, as well as sought-after suburban benefits such as parks, trails, and kid-friendly amenities.
Another interesting trend noted in the report is that these surban neighborhoods may replace traditional shopping centers. By combining housing and retail, residents enjoy convenient, car-free shopping that offers more than just consumer goods, but a lifestyle experience.
Tom Maddox has seen Rockville’s landscape change dramatically since he was a boy in the 1940s. “From the center of Rockville, you didn’t have to go three miles without encountering a working farm,” says Maddox, the third generation in a family of surveyors who’ve helped developers transform the city and its surroundings from a rural outpost in the 19th century into the thriving metropolitan suburb it is today. Yet Rockville’s pastoral legacy runs deep, where neighborhoods such as King Farm and North Farm refer to their previous incarnations, and Dawson Farm Park combines public open space with the property’s two original 19th-century farmhouse buildings.
