Downtowns, Greenfields and Places In Between: Promoting Development Near Transit

The introduction describes eight development contexts found around transit stations. Chapter 2 revisits the three regions explored in Rails to Real Estate (Denver, Charlotte, Twin Cities) to take a closer look at where development did and did not occur in terms of the eight development contexts. Chapter 3 provides a more detailed look at the opportunities and challenges involved in fostering TOD in each type of neighborhood, and discusses strategies that may be appropriate for catalyzing TOD depending on the development context.
