A couple of weeks ago I saw an interesting article in the Washington Post ( http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp...nguage=printer ). The article mentioned that an entire subdivision of 100 homes on 80+ acres in Fairfax County, VA was being bought out for the construction of over 1,000 townhouses, apartments and some detached homes!
I always wondered how more dense development would come to the suburbs; I guess developers with deep enough pockets will lead the way in buying whole subdivisions to build tons more homes. My guess -- in the near future developers will come to suburban governments to tell them that some subdivision is not viable anymore, and they will want assistance toward its acquisition for redevelopment.
The emerging suburban renewal. Please discuss.
