I think that it's too early to tell if Vermillon will ever reach its potential. I think that the developer (Nate Bowman) really wants Vermillion to have core TND principles. I wish that it was farther along so that I could makeup my mind.
I'm going to checkout the Lake Davidson area. It's a baeutiful college town and could really be what I am looking for.
Myers Park is an awsome area. Its also VERY expensive. I can't believe tht it took developers 80 years to see the value in this project that was built around the first world war! I'm going to make an effort to learn about John Nolen.
P.S. Here is a link to a 1911 plan for Myers Park on the Vermillion web site.
