The article features exclusive Q&A with Meea Kang, president of Domus Development, and John Given, principal of investment and development at CIM Group:

"What became clear was that nobody disagrees with infill development. No building group has a bone to pick with it, and no environmental group has a major bone to pick with it. In fact, at the broadest level, infill represents the state land-use policy." -John Given

"Unfortunately, cities see development as being the solution for all of their fiscal problems. Governments rely on infill developers to pay a disproportionate share of infrastructure costs, more so than perhaps any other development right now, especially compared to greenfield sites that don't necessarily pay their way." -Meea Kang
