Development along a corridor can be configured to reduce walking distances for customers and make streets more useful for pedestrians, transit users, and bicyclists. Successful site design balances automobile and pedestrian accessibility and creates a presence that is welcoming to all users. A key factor is the organization of buildings and parking relative to adjacent streets. Drawing the building to the street edge and moving parking to the rear frames the street - enhancing and enlivening - the pedestrian environment with storefronts and entrances along the sidewalk. Building entries should border main streets and public thoroughfares to foster a vibrant, walkable environment.
