Similar to tract housing, Bedroom Community, and suburb. A suburb for whom any possibility of individual character or personality has been rampantly homogonized by unregulated commercialism; as the 'Mc' prefix would denote. Residential "units" are within 3 ft. of eachother. Retail strip centers lack independent businesses of any kind, primarily big box, high volume stores. Cultural enrichment opportunities such as venues for the performing arts and museums are nowhere to be found as they are not as monetarily profitable of use of the land they occupy as retail or residential would be.
We must be in a McBurb, honey. Haven't seen an independently owned retailer for miles, and everything looks the same.
