Little Infill

Dateline: 7:53 pm April 4, 2010 Filed under:

My latest article in Urban Land magazine has been published in the March/April 2010 issue. Read “Little Infill” here.

Little Infill refers to the challenges the development community and cities face in trying to develop small projects on even smaller sites. On the one hand, “little infill” projects are quite popular, particularly if they are mixed-use. OK, popular in principle, but often very opposed by immediate neighbors. As well, there are challenges with regard to design, financing, leasing/selling, and with various zoning and other city codes.

Yet little infill projects must be made easier to develop if we are to accomodate forecast growth in our cities and even our suburbs in a sustainable way in the next few decades.

I welcome the discussion and feedback.
