Pedestrian Oriented Development

The value of the future East Washington Street is its unparalleled transit access and associated vibrant urban form. It won’t succeed by pretending to be suburban, and new development must embrace pedestrians first and foremost. This means wide, contiguous sidewalks with high-quality amenities; inviting active storefronts in buildings that address the sidewalk; locating parking lots to the rear of buildings, and minimizing driveways, curb cuts, and drive-throughs which diminish the pedestrian experience.
