The Crossings was developed in 1994 into a uniform neighborhood of 540 homes. In 2002, this community was awarded the Outstanding Planning Award by the American Planning Association. This neighborhood’s convenient location, as well as multiple parks make it a great place for recreation and families. Residents are within strolling distance of parks, as well as the San Antonio Shopping Center, with its grocery and other retail stores. Reputed for being child-friendly, this area’s dedicated mothers will coordinate their schedules to take turns supervising children playing in the local parks. It is particularly notable that the neighborhood is right near the San Antonio Caltrain station, which is great for commuting. Homes in the Crossings are thoughtfully designed with open layouts and abundant natural light that floods and warms the interiors. Many of the properties here are tri-level, which may pose a challenge for less mobile residents. This very close-knit community holds monthly housing-association meetings and coordinates garage sales, and many houses display Neighborhood Watch markers.
