The Path to Trail Oriented Development
Infrastructure is a key driver of real estate investment and development and typically calls to mind interstate highways, roads, and bridges. More recently, infrastructure centered around transit stops or rail stations has been in high demand across the country. This transit-oriented development (TOD) is characterized by compact, mixed-use, residential, and commercial development.
Today, in pursuit of even more walkable, livable communities, bike lanes, greenways, and other forms of active transportation infrastructure are helping spur a new generation of TOD – “trail-oriented development.”
“This trend reflects the desire of people around the world to live in places where driving an automobile is just one of a number of safe, convenient, and affordable transportation options.” – Active Transportation in Real Estate: The Next Frontier*
