Off to Nashville and Atlanta
Howdy. On Saturday I fly out to Nashville to visit Lenox Village -- a greenfield project included in a 2004 issue of Terrain.org (http://www.terrain.org/unsprawl/15/). From there, I'll drive down to Atlanta to visit Glenwood Park (http://www.terrain.org/unsprawl/17/), which was included in a 2005 issue.
I visited many of the communities we're including the Terrain.org UnSprawl book before I wrote those initial case studies. But not all of them, and Glenwood Park is one that I haven't personally visited yet. I worked closely with the developer at the time, long-distance, to put that study together, drawing from published research and articles as well as feedback from the developer and residents.
Both visits are exciting, though, because in the case of Lenox Village, I'll get to see the development's substantial progress over the last seven years. For Glenwood Park, I'll get to see first-hand the brownfield redevelopment near downtown Atlanta that has won such awards as the EarthCraft House Development of the Year and Congress for New Urbanism Charter Award. I'm also meeting with the developers and designers of both projects.
Thank you once again for pledging your support to this important book project. We're now three-fifths of the way to our funding goal -- and you are making it happen!
