Changing demographics and preferences, along with changes in where business choose to locate, are two trends that are creating new market opportunities for infill development. However, infill development can present barriers that discourage developers. Our new report, Smart Growth and Economic Success: Investing in Infill Development, discusses how these barriers are often surmountable and are beginning to diminish as infill development becomes more common. Lower infrastructure costs, combined with higher rent and sales prices, can help make infill projects profitable for developers, and also support neighborhoods that are better for the environment and improve quality of life.
Smart Growth and Economic Success: Investing in Infill Development is the third report in our Smart Growth and Economic Success series:
- Smart Growth and Economic Success: Benefits for Real Estate Developers, Investors, Businesses, and Local Governments, the first report, outlines the benefits of smart growth development for developers, businesses, local government, and other groups.
- Smart Growth and Economic Success: The Business Case, the second report, discusses how locations with housing and transportation options, a mix of uses close together, and a high quality of life can improve environmental outcomes while providing economic advantages for businesses.
A fourth report on strategies for local governments is in production.
Read all three reports.
