The creation of dynamic town centers that include a mix of housing, offices, stores, civic buildings, and theaters -- all in a pedestrian-friendly setting -- is one of the most important trends in real estate and planning today. This new book will help you navigate through the unique design and development issues and show you how to make all of the elements work together in a new or redeveloped town center. You will learn about the economic and social forces driving this trend; about special regulatory, market, and finance issues; how these projects are being developed in a variety of settings, ranging from master-planned communities to redevelopment areas; and how suburban planners and developers are pursuing town center concepts to create attractive gathering places for their communities. Illustrated in full color, the book includes case studies and numerous examples that describe how leading professionals met the challenges and developed innovative and successful projects.
