What do you think when you see this photo? Yes, that’s a freeway right next to a condo development in Placer County. It reminds me of several things: 1) Land development can happen in places we sometimes wouldn’t expect – especially when the economy and real estate market are really booming; 2) We are willing to look past negative factors to live in a particular community or afford a house (especially a first house); and 3) Would you save money on utility costs due to shade from the freeway?

For further context, here is an aerial view of the subdivision along Highway 65.
