Subdivision design has evolved through the years. From suburban cookie cutter communities to large estates on even larger lots, the concept of subdivision design revolves around what will make the largest profit for the development group. The market crash of 2008 significantly changed the subdivision design process. Almost no new subdivision work has been completed for the last 10 years. As the market is starting to come around so are subdivisions. However, the results of the recession have left buyers more cautious and more frugal in their spending decisions. Builders as a result are sitting on funds and trying to figure out how to provide a product that will sell.
