Imperial Lake is a Planned Unit Development (PUD) located just West of the intersection of the Turnpike and the 836 expressways, around one of the largest inhabited lakes in Miami-Dade county. The development is on the Western border of the county urban development, which makes it suburban, but the close access to both expressways and other major roads, such as the Tamiami Trail and Flagler Street, gives easy and fast access to the rest of the county.
There are over 1200 residences at Imperial Lake and they were built during the 1990s and early 2000s. It has four single family developments: Shoma Homes at Imperial Lake, Pacifica, Romantica and Lake Pointe 6, four Townhome developments, two of which are true townhomes: Reflections and Park Place and the other two are condos built as townhomes: Puerto Bello and Marina Real. Finally there is the condo development built as two story villas: Villa Real. Each development has its own association(s) and all are under the umbrella of the Imperial Lake Master Association. Each sub association manages itself while the Master takes care of the maintenance of the Lake, the main roads, the amenities, security and the perimeter fences.

Being next to the intersection of the 836 and Turnpike expressways, gives it access to everywhere, making it central in fact.
