The 2,300-acre development is also designed like communities from decades ago, where it’s walkable with nearby parks and income levels are mixed together, from pricey custom houses to townhomes for young families.
Sections of the development are set aside for senior living and commercial development is planned over the next 10 to 12 years.
Yet the real estate boom over the last decade has probably priced Viridian out of reach for some buyers with the cheapest townhomes selling for around $300,000.
With higher real estate prices, Kembel argues that homeowners should look for homes with smaller lot sizes and square footage where they can still take advantage of the amenities.
“This will still be here a 100 years from now,” Kembel said. “This is built to last and be an asset to the community for decades to come.”
