Visiting Hampstead

Last Monday, we visited Hampstead.  Hampstead is a fairly new neighborhood located right off of Taylor Road.  The neighborhood combines different uses such as: commercial, agriculture,  and residential.  In addition to the current businesses, Hampstead is planning on building a temporary building for a coffee house by day and a pub by night to be done in 2010.  This was interesting to our group, because the building would normally be illegal since it violates height requirements.  However, the city is allowing it to be temporarily placed in the front of the neighborhood until it can be moved to the back on a lake after the area in the back is developed. 

Overall, Hampstead provides a unique experience for its homeowners and the general community.  The area is beautiful, appealing, and functional.
