Parkwyn Village has evolved over the years. A home was built on the last undeveloped lot in 2007, and new construction will begin in 2018 on a lot where the original home was raised in 2014.
The presence of the Frank Lloyd Wright homes continues to attract visitors to Parkwyn Village. Tours occasionally make there way here from various parts of the United States, like this one organized by the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy that brought hundreds to Kalamazoo, MI in October 2013. Another tour is being considered for Spring 2018.
In October 2016, the Kalamazoo City Commission approved a memorandum of understanding with local philanthropists William Parfet and William Johnston to supplement the city's budget with private donations. For the first three years, the Foundation for Excellence will be funded through a $70.3 million donation. In addition to replacing revenue lost by lowering the city property tax rate from 19.27 mills to 12 mills, the agreement guarantees $10 million per year for three years for community-building projects.
As of November 30, 2017, Zillow reports that Oakland-Winchell home values have gone up 7.3% over the past year and predicts they will rise 2.7% in the next year.
