A Complex but “Smart” Opportunity
Creating vibrant, livable, and sustainable communities
A development for more than one purpose is a growing planning concept used in many parts of the world. Mixed-use developments bring compatible land uses closer together. Encouraging “smart” commercial and mixed-use developments are attractive as it brings together the live, work, and play environment in one complex or area. A carefully designed plan can successfully allow the most efficient and compatible use of land and utilities and encourage transportation options that include walking, bicycling, and public transit. Parking for mixed-use planning can be less then what may typically be required for a single-zoned property. Each project is unique, as each combination of use will require a different parking demand and planning.
LVR International has many years of national and international experience in transit oriented and mixed-used developments. Our team’s wide-range of knowledge and experience provide fresh and innovative planning approaches that are customized for our clients.
