6831Minimum Size of Carfree Districts?
- Jan 28, 2004I know I'm dabbling in the realm of the highly unlikely here, but if one
could construct a greenfield carfree development along a rail line that
was going to open in the next 10-20 years, even in a very auto-oriented
place, how small could it be and still stand a chance of getting a
critical mass to support itself?
I'm thinking in terms of local retail, etc.? Would 50 acres do at the 1.5
FAR? 30? Or do we need to go higher? (I'm working from Crawford's
reference district idea here)
