It seems that all the real estate developing around Antigua Guatemala are just gated communities; these are like mushrooms, the spring up overnight. Most of these gated communities have guard at the gates. Well, guess what, I am not interested in the guards, but in the architectural style of the gates themselves. For instance the arched gate shown above is from a community that was stopped for unknown reason, but the gate remains. The gates are also the first thing built in new real estate development, many times the architectural design of the gate ends up becoming the identity piece and logo.
Now, what are your thoughts regarding unmanaged and uncontrolled real estate development?
