New Places, New Choices:
Transit-Oriented Development in the San Francisco
The transit lifestyle in the Bay Area comes in several forms,
from for-purchase townhomes and condos, to rental apartments,
to live-work lofts for lease or purchase. The architectural
styles and settings are just as diverse: Some complexes have
a Mediterranean or Victorian feel, while others sport an industrial
motif. Some offer scenic views, while others provide the cultural
richness of a downtown arts or entertainment district.
A new publication issued by MTC along with the Association
of Bay Area Governments, the Bay Area Air Quality Management
District and the Bay Conservation and Development Commission
captures the variety — and
appeal — of
this new development pattern. New Places,
New Choices: Transit-Oriented Development in the San Francisco
Bay Area showcases 10 shining
examples of transit-oriented districts and corridors. In words
and full-page photos, the handsome report makes the case for
replicating these best practices around the region.
To quote the report, “Transit-oriented development is
not a one-size-fits-all phenomenon; it is a flexible form of
development adapted to local circumstances.”
