KIT Homes

KIT Homes was contracted by Epilogue in response to the imminent demolition of the Saints Peter and Paul High School in Widnes and was the name of our first real estate development in the UK. The school was originally constructed in 1952 with the local community paying a small contribution from their wage packets each week to buy the bricks. It was to be knocked down to make way for a real estate developer, an invasive construction of large private houses that quickly became a contentious issue. It was here that Borderline Developments stepped in to facilitate participation by the local community. Having submitted plans and blueprints to Borderline Developments our new clients selected a site on the playing fields where our ground personnel marked out the design to its full size. KIT Homes offered the prospective buyer an opportunity to design their own ideal home on a prime piece of contested real estate. Aerial photographs were taken of the site and then located in our pleasant on-site office where further information and souvenir postcards were also available.

Following the marked success of the KIT Homes venture, Borderline Developments decided to expand our daily operations to become a multi-national company. Offering new opportunities to our customers resulted in a large scale investment in new technologies. The main feature of our acquisitions being a GPS driven robot. After linking the robot to the Global Positioning System Borderline Developments then linked the Internet to the same system so that anyone with access to our website could effectively drive the robot from the comfort of their own home.Our new robotic mark up system was inaugurated at the end of 1999 with the development at LeBreton Flats, Ottawa. On this prime polluted tract of land we invited a global audience to design blueprints for structures that could exist on and utilise a toxic landscape. On site our portacabin office invited the general public and press to witness the robot drawing out the blueprints onto the contaminated site, to sample our impressive range of merchandise and products for a polluted existence and to browse our website for up to date information on the historical and toxic residue of their chosen site.

Borderline Developments the International contaminated real estate developers are pleased to announce fifty new plots for development at Tlanepantla, an area at the heart of Mexico City’s heavy industry. Development will take place through our unique website <> and on-site our robot will draw onto the polluted landscape, offering archetypal Greylands property that once again gives you the opportunity to design structures for hazardous dwelling. In the largest metropolis in the world, pollution is a way of life.
