Overview

Transit-oriented development is key to getting the most out of the state’s extensive transit infrastructure, reducing VMT, and facilitating more efficient land use. In Greater Boston’s hot housing market, you can pick out a transit stop by the cranes that dot the skyline. Join us for a conversation on the lessons we can learn from these new developments and the latest thinking on how we translate this success to TOD projects in weaker real estate markets further from the urban core.

Learning objectives for session:

1) Develop an understanding of the hot housing market and transit-oriented development.

3) Learn lessons from implemented projects and the latest thinking on how we translate this success to TOD projects in weaker real estate markets further from the urban core.
