Lendon of Huntsville, a Traditional Neighborhood Development, has the quaintness, style and architecture reminiscent of days gone by when life was simpler and the pace was slower. At the direction of John Blue and Peter Lowe, Land Innovations helped with the envisioning of a vibrant neighborhood with its own shops, restaurants, parks and walking paths. It is nestled in the gorgeous setting of Jones Valley – just a short distance from major city venues. Lendon is a community for all the times of your life where people of all ages can live, work and play and where lasting friendships are formed.
Jones Valley’s hallmark is its undisturbed farmland lying at its north end which is abundant with fescue pastures sprinkled with Hereford cattle. Its southeastern corner displays a newly developed shopping district featuring a wide variety of local and national restaurants and retailers as well as a Rave theater, banking facilities, health and fitness centers, spas and beauty salons, pharmacies and pet supplies all within walking distance or a short drive. The area has become a major shopping destination and is attracting even more interest in the commercial area.
Lendon has been designed as a Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND), a design philosophy based on historic neighborhoods where homes, shops, businesses, theaters, schools, parks and other important services are all within a short walk from one another. At the heart of Lendon will be a community center where residents can gather for social functions and other neighborhood events. Lendon’s shopping district will offer an array of stores, convenient neighborhood services and multiple restaurants with varied cuisines.
In Lendon and other TNDs, a variety of house types, sizes and styles are integrated into the community to accommodate people at different stage of life – from young couples and singles to families and empty nesters. For those who prefer no commute, live-work units will offer an increasingly popular and flexible housing option.
Small playgrounds and neighborhood parks are situated within a two- to three-minute walk from any neighborhood location. Street trees, sidewalks, and front porches create avenues that encourage walking, biking and neighbor interaction. Service alleys are used for parking access and refuse container storage, so they will not be visible from the main roads. Interconnected streets and sidewalks are used to disperse traffic while providing a network of walkways. All of these attributes coalesce to form the unique lifestyle of Lendon.
