Transit Oriented Development
Our unique approach to transit oriented development uses land efficiently and creates communities focused on a better quality of life...
The goal of transit oriented development (TOD) is to focus development in areas with transit to create compact, walkable, and healthier communities that offer value and a greater quality of life for residents. TOD planning and design is not a checklist of criteria; it’s a way of thinking. We offer a unique approach that is market savvy and development-focused. We identify land uses that benefit from transit and respond to the problems and opportunities of each station area. We view the land through the eyes of developers to identify parcels best suited to development and any investment barriers. We help cities identify and prioritize public investments that will encourage private development. By starting with a strong, yet flexible, vision for the ultimate development pattern, we guide development to realize current opportunities, without limiting future potential. Residents are drawn to live where everything they need is in close proximity. Visitors flock to a place that is vibrant and full of life. And, a sense of community forms when people leave their cars behind to walk down the street to their local shop or office, greeting neighbors as they pass by.
