Brazilian Suburbia: Alphaville

Alphaville is a suburb of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. All the photos in this first posts are mine. In the second post there are some pics from www.phmengenharia.com.br which show some houses in Alphaville.

Alphaville has a nice commercial and service center and many residential condominiums around it.

Looks like boring bland suburbia. Very nice, well kempt and affluent, but not urban at all. Too car centric.

It's very clean but it does look very 'dry' and boring.

That's why we have those AMAZING cities Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo!
I LOVE BRAZIL!

Most state capitals and bigger cities in Brazil have one of these "Alphavilles", it´s actually an urban plan made by a company. It offers both residential and commercial areas with restricted circulation, and they all have this "clean" look. The one in São Paulo (the first to be built) actually went beyond and now has very high skyscrapers, changing the entire dynamics of the cities it was built on. The impact was so great they had to build larger roads between the city and this new "suburb", which has one of the highest GDP per capita in the country.
But yes, it is boring, and people don´t regard it as the best place to live in.

Looks very well-kempt, quaint, and boring. Suburbia.
