Why is the community called Bloomdale?

'Bloom' communicates that the development is growing and blossoming from an established base — the local village community.

The notions of growth inferred by 'Bloom' are aligned with the primary audience for the project — young and established families whose lives grow and blossom as children grow up.

'Dale' is a land suffix that refers to a flat or relatively low geographic region.
