Peter Callaghan tells the story of how developer Gary Holmes spearheaded an effort to transform a disused rail terminal in downtown Minneapolis from a sea of parking to a thriving mixed-use district.
Rachel Quednau writes on the subject of empty ground-floor retail spaces in the wave of mixed-use development that is being added at a increasingly rapid pace in communities around the country.

Katherine Shaver reports that developers are focusing on "experience" as a draw for residents and visitors. "It’s the latest buzzword among developers seeking to transform automobile-centric inner suburbs into walkable urban hubs."
A piece in the Vancouver Sun looks at slumping property markets in several cities across the Pacific.
Marco Chown Oved reports: "Google’s futuristic development on the eastern waterfront, Quayside, is only the first step in an expansive and ambitious plan to build new neighbourhoods — and new transit — throughout the entire Port Lands, the Star has learned."
"There is little doubt that Philadelphia's relentless housing boom (fueled by the 10-year property tax abatement) has run roughshod over some neighborhoods, destroying cherished architecture, driving up prices, and pushing out the poor and elderly," Inga Saffron writes.
