LA is Encouraging Developers to Put Denser Housing Near Transit
In Less than Three Years, the Program has Spurred Plans for 20,000 New Apartments
West Coast Land Use and Environment Partner Ryan Leaderman comments on a proposal to put denser housing near public transit options.
“The idea is that people will take transit if it’s close,” said Mr. Leaderman.
By building more places for people to live, including affordable housing, near public transportation, the city is putting residents near non-car transportation options in hopes of reducing emissions.
"And denser areas mean walking and biking [to destinations] are easier."
