REscour TSW Discuss Urban Planning Effects on CRE
We sat down with city planner Caleb Racicot to ask a few questions of interest regarding urban planning and policies that affect commercial real estate.
Based in Atlanta, Georgia, TSW is an award-winning, full-service planning, architecture, and landscape architecture firm. As Senior Principal, Caleb Racicot serves as a community planner specializing in the interdisciplinary fields of place making, outreach and consensus building, master plans, and development regulations. He has practiced in both rural and urban areas, and understands the central role of the consultant as listener and facilitator.
Without discussing Atlanta specifically, we wanted to share how zoning diagnostics can affect a suburban city’s infrastructure. By analyzing similarly-styled metropolitan areas, landscape architecture firms can generate a better understanding of what works and what doesn’t, with the ultimate goal of increasing housing density, creating better access to transportation options, boosting walkability, and preserving the aesthetics of historic neighborhoods.
Stay tuned for more conversations to follow, as we learn more about the implications of commercial real estate policy.
