  • All of us think we know real estate, and we have all been involved with it in one way or another since our arrival in the Ahospital delivery room. That building, our earliest impres- sion of the world, is real estate; the residence we were taken home to, whether a single-family house or an apartment, is real estate; the malls and neighborhood centers where we shop, the factories and office buildings where we work, the hotels and resorts...

  • The real estate impact of arts and cultural activities is seen not only in the redevelopment of discrete buildings, but in the incremental renewal of large districts involving complex social and design solutions. The physical expression of place-making by the creative sector often plays out over decades.

  • To our knowledge, only one previous effort (Wilson et al, 2007) explicitly studied school travel in light of school choice. There, we found that school choice led to longer school commute distances (because children attend schools across the district rather than in their neighborhood) and reduced levels of walking and bicycling to school (because longer commutes are less amenable to walking or bicycling). The current study strengthens and expands earlier research.We survey parents to determine attitudes that affect school choice and school travel mode.

Vehicles are most frequently deployed from lots located in neighborhoods, at transit stations, or businesses.

Additionally, no economic or community development strategy should be viewed as a quick-fix to complex social and economic problems.
