Correction: The median build-out year, median square footage and number of homes of Valley Ranch mistakenly only reflected the northern portion of the residential neighborhood. Those specific data points should have also included the Azalea District, which is to the south. The story has been updated to include the correct total homes, according to the Valley Ranch Homeowners Association. The story has also been updated to clarify that the median build-out year and median square footage is just for the northern Valley Ranch area.
