As Slump Continues, Developers Turn to Mixed-Use, Ped-Friendly Homes

In a new survey conducted in the Tri-State and Mid-Atlantic regions, 60% of developers said they were shifting their emphasis away from big houses to "conservative pedestrian-oriented mixed-use neighborhoods."

The survey, conducted by the Strategic Alliance, a group of real estate-related companies, revealed a continued gloomy outlook for developers.

Another question showed more than 63.1% are re-evaluating their projects, planned pre-recession, from a product/layout/density standpoint.

The multifamily residential market came out on top as the sector holding the greatest potential for growth over the next year with 61.4% of respondents, followed by 19.2% for single-family, and 8.7% for active adult.
