Kendall Square offers neighborhood comforts from the good old days

There was a time when neighborhoods didn’t have to call themselves “pedestrian friendly” because they already were, says Carlos Gonzalez, president of Lennar’s Southeast Florida Division, as he pointed out why moving to Kendall Square is the best move for anyone looking to have everything right outside their front door.

“If you remember ‘the good ol’ days,’ then you know the fulfillment and peace of mind of living in such a neighborhood – minimal, slow traffic with sidewalks and streetlamps everywhere, and kids playing in the front yard or cycling down the street,” says Gonzalez, as he wistfully shared how this neighborhood will feature a Main Street lifestyle with a bona fide town square surrounded by stores, restaurants, entertainment and idyllic, front-porch homes.

Kendall Square, one of Kendall’s largest developments since 2003, will be the quintessential all-inclusive neighborhood reflecting this New Urbanism trend that is drawing buyers who are seeking more walkability, more community and minimal congestion, says Gonzalez.

The community will have the Miami-Coral Gables style of living but in affordable West Kendall, and will feature 758 homes in one of three distinctive styles, with a targeted construction date of June 2012. Limited registration is now open for VIP invitation-only events and opportunities.

While Kendall Square is a wonderful neighborhood for any type of homeowner, it is especially appealing to families with younger children thanks to amenities like a water park and 10,000-square-foot clubhouse, says Gonzalez.

“There’s a special peace of mind that comes with this type of community and that’s what young families are looking for today,” says Gonzalez. “Neighbors will be able to bike, stroll or drive to the various venues right around the corner or down the tree-lined street. Special zoning will ensure that the neighborhood is a calmed traffic zone, and convenient guest parking is available on the entry drive.”

Kendall Square is this masterpiece and the homes there will be based on the traditional town planning principles of the early 20th century with reasonable prices from the $200,000s, says Gonzalez.

Unique to the community, Lennar is also introducing its multi-generational floor plan for extended families. And in keeping with the all-inclusive concept, they will feature Lennar’s acclaimed “Everything’s Included Homes,” which means a host of extras are included at no extra cost.
