Streetleaf Solar Streetlights

Streetleaf is available at select MetroPlaces communities and is the first-of-its-kind solar streetlight system in the nation. Streetleaf delivers more than modern appeal and nighttime security. Not only does it save energy, it is not reliant on a power grid which reduces dependence on conventional utilities. The smart technology will automatically dim during inactivity and power to full strength when someone walks or drives by.

Dog Park

When we designed the community, we thought about all of our residents. Even the pooches. So the off-leash Dog Park is the perfect place to let them run wild. They’ll be begging you to take them everyday.
