A housing development is a structured real estate development of residential buildings. Popular throughout the United States and the United Kingdom, they are often areas of high-density, low-impact residences of single-family detached homes, and often allow for separate ownership of each housing unit, for example through subdivision. A housing development is "often erected on a tract of land by one builder and controlled by one management."
