 One of the interesting dynamics of developer driven community is when the
people actually get into their homes, will they have the commitment and
bonds to be a community?  Community is not made by a building, it is a
deliberate relationship that you enter into willingly and with purpose.
Without that relationship, all the common elements in the world will not
make a community happen. There are not a lot of developer driven communities
yet, so it will be interesting to evaluate them in say 5 years after people
move in, and see what happened. Intention is really important, and I have
wondered how a developer would create intention if faced with a conflict
between intention and sales. If sales are lagging, would the developer hold
on to the intention, or would they bale.
