    Swim pond housing development

    With the development around swim ponds/water treatment pond, what kind of housing development is suitable? Do people want to live around these ponds? In the past developers hid them from view, but now it seems that they are being build right near the main collector roads or even arterial. So my question is, should larger more expensive house be built around these pond or should more affordable housing be more suitable?

    Answered my own question. Swim ponds greatly enhances the value of the surrounding development. Swim ponds can even be tailored for townhouses.

    Examples of swimponds by a certain company.
