Published in Railway Age: TOD: How New York got it right

July 09, 2019

By Stuart Lerner

Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) has gained prominence in boardrooms around the country with the increasing urbanization of society

New York can’t claim to be the originator of TOD, but it did take things to the next level. Our Stuart Lerner writes about how projects like Grand Central Terminal and its surrounding district, built in the first decades of the 20th century, are part of the community fabric. A century later, the Grand Central District stands out as a prominent example of TOD, with a new tower, One Vanderbilt Avenue, being constructed right across from the Terminal itself.
