WHY IT WORKED: The Lanes is the first of three neighborhoods available at Tapestry, an innovative mini–master planned community that features a wide variety of floor plans and plenty of amenities the whole family can enjoy.

  • The development's target market of first-time buyers, especially those with small families, are especially attracted to The Lanes' innovative three-story homes.
  • The most popular plans are from the three-story 800 series, which offer oversized decks, flex rooms, bonus rooms, and plenty of storage.
  • All homes from Astoria are Energy Star rated, which means energy savings of at least 30 percent.
  • Homes at The Lanes feature Astoria's “100% Home Package,” which includes Whirlpool appliances, mini-blinds, front-yard landscaping, and a courtyard or deck.
