Developing Around Transit: Strategies and Solutions that Work
Urban Land Institute, Jan 1, 2004 - Transportation - 183 pages
For communities wrestling with growth and sprawl, traffic headaches, and low transit ridership, one of the solutions is well-planned, high-quality development around transit stations. Written by a team of experts in development, planning, and transit, this book breaks new ground by going beyond the typical formula of a master-planned mix of retail, offices, and housing to show a variety of ways to tap the vast prospects of undeveloped and underdeveloped areas around transit stations, whether large scale or small scale, downtown or suburban. Addressing the many challenges, as well as the opportunities, such sites present, 'Developing Around Transit' offers proven strategies for dealing with the special considerations involved in developing vibrant, attractive transit districts that can revitalize deteriorating neighborhoods, provide more customers for transit, justify the transit investment, and raise property values.
