Eagleview is a census-designated place (CDP) in Uwchlan Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 1,644 at the 2010 census.[1] Conceptually, Eagleview was created as "... an old fashion town where you can work, live, shop, see your elders, and care for the young all in the same place."[2] According to a Landsat imagery, the Eagleview shopping center represents a medium density development that generated 400 square feet more living space per acre per the source than lower density developments also shown in the same imagery.[3] Stevens, in his book on a study of how to make communities safer in new urban developments uses Eagleview, along with Weatherstone, as sample data for comparing amount of green space for every acreage of development.[4] The community was listed in volume 6 of the New Urban News as an example of this new type of housing development.[5]
