Transportation Oriented Development

 

 

Transportation drives development. Whether the river, railroad, streetcar, or automobile - land use follows transportation. Our current auto dependent pattern limits choices for many and requires unsustainable financial and environmental resources. A well designed, multi-modal transportation system combined with high quality mixed-use development offers a positive vision for a more sustainable future.

Transit Oriented Development (TOD) - walkable urbanism - serves a growing market and provides economic, environmental, and social benefits. Developing denser, mixed-use, walkable places within 1/4 mile of transit stations serves this market and creates significant real estate value.

This illustration shows three different programs and densities - in number of homes and square feet of retail/office/civic space - and translates them into incremental real estate value and potential new tax revenues to help finance multimodal transportation investments to create a fully integrated metropolitan system. An infrastructure bank, public land banking, equity participation, and other creative public/private financing approaches could provide additional financial resources.
