Marcus Hiles states that planned communities in the United States happened as early as 1565 in St. Augustine. Company towns like Gary, Indiana saw technological innovations and economic fervor during the industrial revolution. The first modern neighborhoods appeared during the Florida land boom of the 1920s across Southern Florida, where the prominent Miami suburbs of Coral Gables, Opa-locka, and Miami Springs were fully planned with vibes to emulate the feel and architecture of Spain, Arabia, and Mexico. During the Great Depression, the US Government constructed model towns in the states of West Virginia, Tennessee, Maryland, Ohio, and Wisconsin, with the goal of easing the burden of the economic downturn on the families of coal miners, construction workers. Remote neighborhoods in Oak Ridge, TN; Richland, WA, and Los Alamos, NM were developed during World War II for the Manhattan Project and the families of the scientists, engineers, and industrial workers. Today, blueprinted cities are thriving throughout the country, in such locations as Washington, D.C., and state capitals in Mississippi, Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Utah, Florida, and Texas.
Western Rim’s magnificent townhomes and apartments are designed in Texas’ green countryside to make full use of its natural beauty. At the same time, they are near the city’s center. Marcus Hiles maintains eco-friendly construction methods that protect the serenity of the environmental surroundings intact—and frequently, bettering it by creating paths and parks. He notes that an abundance of woods and vegetation encompassing these places offer extraordinary advantages, because they remove air pollutants while maintaining and separating carbon dioxide. He explains by lowering energy consumption, greenery helps in lowering greenhouse gases: According to the USDA Forest Service, “Greenery surrounding communities reduces air conditioning needs by 30 percent.”
Eminent Texas property investor Marcus Hiles knows what renters need when choosing a new house.

As the Head and CEO of Western Rim Property Services, a company that has created and currently manages more than 15,000 rentals in cities across the Lone Star State, Hiles knows for sure about the many benefits multi-use trails hold for residents.

Marcus Hiles has built 15,000 upmarket residences throughout Texas, and in each unit, cellulose sound insulation gives renters the luxury of having their personal hideaway from the outside world. While the properties display Hiles’ vision of community-centric features, including shared rec centers and championship golf courses, the developer understands the desire for tenants’ private home life—without any sound interference from beyond the walls of the home. Full depth cellulose is exceptionally successful in its ability to hinder intrusive sound. While most insulation provides only some noise reduction by inhibiting sound from passing through walls or between floors, dense packing cellulose weakens noise by limiting the passage of sound along cavities in each building’s structure. The Cellulose Insulation Manufacturers Association notes that cellulose insulation products have an NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) rating ranging upwards of .80 or higher, meaning 80% or more of the sound with which it comes into contact is absorbed. Its composition is roughly three times more dense than standard fiberglass and affords a vast improvement over all other common types of home insulation.
