Types of Development for the Creative Class
"Thanks to Chris Leinberger, author of the The Option of Urbanism: Investing in a New American Dream, we know what the rather uninspired, industrial age 19 standard product types are that institutional investors put their money in:
Office: Build to suit; Mixed-use urban; Medical
Industrial: Build to suit; Warehouse
Retail: Neighborhood center; Lifestyle center; Big-box anchored
Apartment: Suburban garden; Urban high density
Housing: Entry level; Move-up; Luxury; Assisted living/retirement; Resort/Second home
Miscellaneous: Self storage; Mobile home park
However, what would be the 19 urban development types for the creatives that fuel the knowledge economy?"
The list includes Pedestrian-Only Town Center Retail Entertainment Grouping, Mixed-Use Mini-Condo Mid-Rise and Live-Work Units.
