1 Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) An Overview

2 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Definition of TOD

3 The Transportation/Land Use Connection What Is TOD? TOD is a synergism between land use and transit with the following key characteristics: –Compact Mixture of Uses; –Pedestrian Friendly and Walkable; and –Supportive of a Variety of Transit Options.

4 The Transportation/Land Use Connection TOD provides access to a full range of transportation options: –Walking –Bicycling –Rail Transit –Bus Transit –Automobile Transit stations are at the center of TODs; The area within ¼ mile (or a five minute walk) of these stations forms the TOD core. More About TOD

5 The Transportation/Land Use Connection TOD Core’s Features A vibrant mix of uses including: –Residential –Retail –Office –Commercial –Institutional Thoughtfully designed community spaces; Exciting, pedestrian friendly areas for live, work and play.

8 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Benefits of TOD

9 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Benefits of TOD Increase transit ridership and reduce number of automobile trips generated; Improve air quality; Provide opportunities for neighborhood connections; Increase sense of community; and Reduce household fuel costs associated with heavy auto use.

10 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Benefits Of TOD (Cont.) Promote attractive, safe, walkable mixed-use neighborhoods; and Increase value and income for property owners.

11 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Benefits Of TOD (Cont.) Expand markets and increase revenues for businesses; Enhance tax revenues for local governments from rising land values; Increase development and business transactions in areas near transit.

12 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Demand for TOD

13 The Transportation/Land Use Connection What Do Demographers Say? Demographers estimate that as much as 30 percent of the demand for housing is for denser, walkable, mixed-use communities; and Currently, less than 2 percent of new housing starts are in this category.

14 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Who Will Live Near Transit Stations? Single householders and couples without children (regardless of age) will generate nearly two-thirds of the total demand for TOD, a disproportionate share given their percentage of total households; and Households with children will account for only about 20 percent of the demand for TOD.

15 The Transportation/Land Use Connection National TOD Database 3,353 Fixed Transit Stations in 28 regions 1/4 and 1/2 mile radii + metropolitan comparison.

16 The Transportation/Land Use Connection A Rapidly Growing TOD Literature

17 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Real Estate Investment Adjacent to Transit Washington DC, $15 billion (since 1976); Portland, $3 billion (since the late 1970s); Dallas, $1 billion (since 1996); St. Louis, $1 billion (since 1993); and Charlotte, $400 million ( ).

18 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Examples of TOD Projects

19 The Transportation/Land Use Connection TOD Project #1: Rosslyn-Ballston Corridor

20 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Project Location Arlington County, Virginia.

21 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Transit Facilities and Services Five Metro Rail stations in the corridors; and Transit operator is the Washington Metropolitan Area Transportation Authority (WMATA).

22 The Transportation/Land Use Connection TOD Facts Over 21 million square feet of office, retail, and commercial space; More than 3,000 hotel rooms; and Almost 25,000 residences.

25 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Lessons Learned Think big and involve all stakeholders in dialogue; Take your time on the big “framework” decisions. Once the framework is set, stick to it; Have high expectations; Plan well; Be patient; Maintain integrity of plan; Be consistent; and Density can motivate the private sector.

26 The Transportation/Land Use Connection TOD Project #2: Bethesda Metro Center

27 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Project Location Bethesda, Maryland.

28 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Transit Facilities and Services Metro rail operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority; First train departs: Station opens- 5:04 a.m. Shady Grove- 5:28 a.m. Glenmont- 5:14 a.m. Last train departs: Shady Grove- 12:23 a.m. Wheaton- 11:47 p.m. (Weekday schedules); Metrobus connection: J2, J3, J4, J7, J9.

29 The Transportation/Land Use Connection TOD Facts Some 400,000 square feet of office space; A 380-room Hyatt Hotel; 60,000 square feet of retail space; and The air-rights lease at the Bethesda Station generates $1.6 million annually in rents.

32 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Project Location Hillsboro, Oregon.

33 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Transit Facilities and Services Light Rail operated by Portland Tri-Met; and Orenco Station is a neighborhood of the city of Hillsboro, Oregon, United States. The planned urban town center was designed as a pedestrian friendly, high density community built in conjunction with TriMet’s Westside light rail. Hillsboro, OregonUnited StatesTriMetWestside light rail

34 The Transportation/Land Use Connection TOD Facts 450 to 500 attached town homes and detached homes; 1,400 luxury apartment units; a town center that will initially feature 25,000 square feet of retail space, with 22 apartments or lofts above retail establishments and 24 live-work town homes; and an additional 30,000 square feet of retail space will be available for future development.

36 The Transportation/Land Use Connection TOD Project #4: Martin Luther King Jr. East Busway

37 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Project Location Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

38 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Transit Facilities and Services The Martin Luther King Jr. East Busway is a two-lane dedicated bus-only highway serving the City of Pittsburgh and many of its eastern neighborhoods and suburbs. Total length is 9.1 miles; andPittsburgh Three Port Authority routes and other express and suburban Flyer routes utilize the busway seven days a week.

39 The Transportation/Land Use Connection TOD Facts 59 new developments within 1,500 feet radius of station; $302 million in land development benefits of which $275 million was construction. 80% clustered at station; New construction and renovation of existing buildings; and Retail, office and residential uses are most common.

40 The Transportation/Land Use Connection TOD Project #5: “NoHo” Arts District

41 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Project Location Los Angeles, California.

43 The Transportation/Land Use Connection TOD Facts Through the hard work of community stakeholders in partnership with Los Angeles Neighbourhood Initiative (LANI) and the Community Redevelopment Agency, NoHo has transformed from a thoroughfare dotted with vacant lots to a burgeoning theater district with coffee shops, restaurants and eclectic retail. In June 2000, the terminal Metro Red Line subway station opened within walking distance of this blossoming neighbourhood main street; Medium- and high-density developments are being built around the Metro Station; and Condominium towers (including a 15-story building on Lankershim Blvd) being built in the midst of older one-story bungalows and small apartment complexes. Lankershim

44 The Transportation/Land Use Connection TOD Project #6: Columbia Pike Streetcar Project

46 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Transit Facilities and Services Streetcar technology; Five mile connection between Skyline and Pentagon City; Six-minute service; Service augmented with Metro buses during peak periods.

47 The Transportation/Land Use Connection Streetcar Technology

48 The Transportation/Land Use Connection TOD Facts Include a mixture of community- and neighbourhood-serving retail, office, residential, and recreational/cultural uses developed with a pedestrian scale and character. New mixed-use projects would create a distinct new identity and provide future access to multi-modal transit options.
