In my planning studio here at ASU we have to give a presentation which basically explains what TOD is, what makes good TOD, and give some examples throughout the US (such as Portland and Denver). This will lead into further presentations on TOD in Phoenix based on sites for the Light Rail we call the "Camelback corridor" (for our class, its between 19th Ave. and 7th St., with a north/south border of Colter St. and Highland Ave.). Thats later. However, can anyone share what they think makes good TOD?
We've researched and have come up with generic examples, such as property values have gone up around TOD (as well as homes), increased use of light rail or whatever is in a given city (bus, heavy rail, etc.), decrease in personal vehicle use, commercial developments experiencing decent to good revenue, etc.
