Market Moving To Smart Growth

Smart growth shows results in the Twin Cities.

"...many of the hottest housing projects in the market are dense, multi-family condominium projects in the core cities. Many new home buyers are eschewing long commutes and high-maintenance houses for condos close to downtown. Proximity to public transit (including the new light-rail transit line) is often touted as a benefit of many housing projects. Mixed-use projects combining residential and retail elements are becoming increasingly popular."
