Sameness, is that a selling point?

So we’re driving to see the relatives in Laurel in some townhouse development. But before you can get to that townhouse development, you have to drive past a few other developments. I was struck with the sameness of it all. A good curve of large pointy roofed buildings close in the same repeating neutral colors, and there were so many of them. And I thought, even on college campuses, where you have to house a number of students (who have to take what you give anyway), there wasn’t that level of sameness.
