Look, everyone. A suburb is being born.

This is what happens when a Mommy suburb and a Daddy suburb get together and make a baby suburb.  Unlike human babies, suburb babies are not the product of cell division.  Instead, suburb embryos take time and construction.  Many, many men and women are involved in the first steps in the life of a suburb.

The hard part is that suburbs often require the destruction of whatever was in its place before it was conceived.  A tree.  A house.  An acreage.  It doesn’t matter.  If it was there when the conception happened, it must be taken out.

But, isn’t it all worth it?  Isn’t it cute?  This tiny little suburb baby?  We don’t even know what it might turn out to be.  Will it be condos?  Or maybe a bunch of detached single family homes.  Or maybe, just maybe, it’ll be a gated community.  Only the future can tell.

Aww…grow baby, grow.

    I don’t know who staked that line but I hope it wasn’t supposed to be straight. There are lots of lots or a multiplicity of manors in this municipality.

    • Apparently this is a neighborhood that’s being developed by a Canadian government housing development company. Read into that what you will.

    Too bad that before the suburb baby can be born, the land under it has to aborted
