En las ciudades de Tijuana, Nogales y Ciudad Juárez, ubicadas en la frontera noroeste entre México y Estados Unidos, uno de los procesos de urbanización que se ha extendido en los últimos años es la modalidad del fraccionamiento cerrado. Estas áreas residenciales se caracterizan por ser espacios físicos protegidos y separados de los disturbios de la ciudad por bardas y rejas, y en su mayoría presentan un acceso restringido por medio de casetas, plumas y seguridad proporcionada por guardias privados. El concepto de fraccionamiento cerrado tiende a expandirse en el paisaje urbano de las ciudades fronterizas sin más restricciones que las que el mercado inmobiliario se impone a sí mismo, no obstante, es importante analizar su impacto en la morfología de las ciudades, la sustentabilidad urbana de estos desarrollos y la segregación social que propician.
