The Infill TOD Circus: Step Right Up

Developing within a built-up transit corridor has unique challenges: demolition, infrastructure improvements, increases in scale, access improvements, community opposition (or support) and financing. Add to those, managing expectations for a new transit facility in an existing community, and infill TOD can be a real circus. Hear our panel of developers talk about their experiences. What does it take to develop that mixed-use environment everyone wants? How can you manage expectations? And what does it take to establish a brand?
