The New New Urbanism
Meghan Stromberg, a Senior Editor for Professional Builder, writes a "Special Report" analyzing the growing trend of Traditional Neighborhood Development. The TND trend has gathered enough traction that larger companies are taking notice. "As the TND model grows, it also evolves. TND 'hybrid' come from mixing TND principles with those of conventional subdivisions...n many markets, builders cant see how TND would sell in the suburbs and farther out...Still, diehard New Urbanists believe that not only is TND here to stay, but also that its future lies with large home builders equipped with the capital to build on a large scale and hire the best talent."
