A "builder's special" is when land is purchased (or an existing house demolished) in an established neighborhood of well-appointed homes of unique architecture by a builder who then builds a pedestrian home consisting of mainstream components and little architectural interest. Builder specials are almost always in-fill to an existing neighborhood.
While all McMansions are Builder Specials, the derisive term Builder Special is reserved for a pedestrian home placed in a neighborhood of unique homes, whereas McMansions are often clustered together in a subdivision of McMansions.
Yeah, a developer bought the vacant lot across the street and is putting in a builder's special.
