Development Trends Along Transit
TOD has positive impacts on the ability of a region to grow efficiently, equitably and sustainably. Recognizing this, the TOD Office studied how much development has been permitted and planned along high-frequency transitways in the Minneapolis/St. Paul region. The study found:
- More than $4.5 billion in nonresidential development permitted between 2003 and 2017
- More than 15,500 multifamily residential units permitted between 2009 and 2017
- $5 billion in planned development value
The study is the first of what will be an annual report of development permitted along transit.
