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.
