Webinar: Housing in Commercial Corridors


Community Design


On July 14, 2022 we held a virtual roundtable with renowned city planner and architect Peter Calthorpe, innovative housing developer Meea Kang, and expert on the economics of land use planning and development Jason Moody, on how we can use the outdated commercial strips that traverse communities across California to address the housing crisis and create economically and fiscally sustainable environments.

These auto-dominated corridors—many dead or dying in the age of online retail—present a critical opportunity to form mixed-use boulevards of workforce housing and transit, transforming barren arterials into climate-smart and more affordable places to live.
