We’ve reached part five of our six part series with Caleb Racicot, Senior Principal at TSW in Atlanta. In the previous videos Caleb and Chris Lexmond, REscour CTO, have discussed many aspects of strategic urban planning and policy changes that effect cities from preserving historical aesthetics to floor area ratio. For the commercial real estate industry understanding how both of those drive their business is key.
In this short 3 minute video Caleb goes into detail on walkability and talks about how zoning regulations for buildings can encourage the design to be a pedestrian friendly environment. He also covers the importance of realizing that walkability is not a trend and how to make the transition into a walker friendly community.
This is a must watch if you are interested in knowing which Atlanta areas are leading the way in foot traffic and where public transit fits into the situation. Stay tuned for our final video in the series to be delivered in two weeks and if you want to start from the beginning you can catch part one here.
