Cities throughout the United States are learning again that there is a symbiotic relationship between transit and nearby development such as offices, shops, housing, and public spaces. The reality is that transit and development – when planned and shaped carefully – can function as two halves of one successful whole.
Leland Consulting Group is recognized nationally as an expert in transit- oriented development, having worked on more than 70 such projects throughout the country. We help our clients create vibrant transit communities that support bicycling, walking, retail, housing, and more. But we also watch for unexpected surprises on the tracks: the need for retail to respond to transit users and the broader market, public-private partnerships, negotiations, and the high costs of structured parking.
