The Rebranding of Urban Transit: A "TOD Summit" Lets Architects Rethink Rail

By Jack Skelley

Architects and urban planners agree: TODs—or Transit Oriented Developments—are the future of our cities. As land on the urban fringes is consumed by sprawl, creating hideous commutes and sour economies, a crucial solution is to bring transportation close to jobs and housing. What is also dawning on these experts, however, is that the TOD solution is not the most people-friendly concept. Fairly or not, it tends to connote noisy trains and cramped living.

James C. Auld, AIA, a partner with Altoon Partners LLP, is an architect leading the rethinking of TODs. He co-chairs the annual TOD Summit produced by ULI Los Angeles. (This year’s TOD summit is Thursday, June 6, at Metro Headquarters in downtown Los Angeles. Register here.) He describes how the TOD solution is evolving into “great places to live and play.”

Events: ULI-LA Urban Marketplace Tomorrow

Interested in planning and development in Los Angeles and surrounding communities? If so, there’s still time to register to attend tomorrow’s ULI Los Angeles Urban Marketplace at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion (you can even do it morning of at the door). The event offers attendees the chance to learn about infill property acquisition opportunities. Representatives from Los Angeles and other Southern California cities will also be on hand to speak about infill opportunities. And roundtable discussions with industry leaders will give participants an unmatched opportunity to talk projects and real estate trends.

Unlike traditional real estate conferences, the Urban Marketplace gives attendees a very interactive event,” says co-chair Ryan Aubrey. “They can pick and choose topics and do things on their own schedule.” Roundtable options include sessions on new market tax credits, designing for the new office client, multifamily construction, LADWP energy upgrades, and the LA River. With the economy picking up, expect to see excitement and enthusiasm tomorrow.
