"Whatever the styles are abroad, once the Jamaican gets there, he/she can be depended on to bringing them home. Hence, very few major innovations are unheard of in Jamaica."
"In fact, it doesn't take very long, normally, for new concepts to take on and become popular in Jamaica. For example, the matter of gated communities is becoming common place across the island, especially in the urban centres. One property development group - the Geon Group - headed by chairman of the Jamaica Developers Association, Reynold Scott, recently highlighted its own successes with marketing such communities."
"Not to be outdone, but less established in Jamaica, is the concept of integrated housing development. But a quick glance at the plans for the top level Twin Palms Estate outside May Pen, Clarendon, and Plantation Heights in the Caymanas Hill of St. Andrew, clearly outlines the concept of establishing 'all-inclusive' communities."
"Though geared primarily for the wealthy, this phenomenon represents yet another growing option for home ownership in Jamaica."
