Cluster Development
A cluster development describes a system of compressing more homes into a constricted space. Cluster developments are commonly found in urban neighborhoods where open space is hard to find. These neighborhoods have typically been built-out to cover the maximum open space that is available. Examples of the types of homes found in cluster developments include high-rise buildings, apartment buildings, row houses, brownstones and similar multi-dwelling housing units. Neighborhoods where housing is in high demand can be assisted by the construction of cluster developments. With this type of housing, hundreds of residents can find homes in neighborhoods that traditionally could not provide such supply. With the help of builders that specialize in cluster developments, high-quality homes can be built in areas that residents want to remain in for reasons such as schooling, family or proximity to employers.
