Transit-oriented development (TOD) is a residential or commercial area designed to maximize access to public transport. Mixed-use/compact neighborhoods tend to use transit all the time. As a result, many cities are striving to implement better TOD strategies and secure funding to create new public transportation infrastructure and improve existing services.
Our lawyers and professionals have substantial experience in the transit industry. Our attorneys and planners have directly assisted with the creation of a number of TODs, including assisting to secure infrastructure support from state and federal sources, representing private developers in public-private joint venture station redevelopments, and providing guidance to public agencies for joint development projects at transit stations along and throughout an entire system.
