      This is New Urbanism?
      It isn't much different from our urbanism here...except we don't build porches, and in Valdivia at least it wouldn't be very usefull, unless they were sealed with glass or something to prevent wind and rain to come in. But the lot sizes and house size (not exactly shape) are practically the same.

      Admitidly this is not the best example of New Urbanism: The garages are too big on many of the houses, the prices are artificially high, and as nice as the houses are, it is located in a rapidly growing area that is seeing more than it's fair share of urban sprawl. In fact, this project itself contributes to sprawl. As welcome as and refreshing as these house styles are amongst a sea of jive-plastic, pop and fresh, out of scale snout houses and condos, the project is contributing to loss of farmland, drainage problems and traffic.

      We are just hoping that some of these designs can be used to fill in some of the vacant lots in a historic district in the City of Toledo known as Englewood. A non-profit organization whose territory includes the historic district is working with the developer of this project to build some infill there, particularly on one block where urban renewal programs have left four weed-choked vacant lots in a row and a gaping hole in the center of the district.

      Some of these styles would fit in very nicely in the historic district, which is mostly comprised of 1890s to 1910s Transitional house styles. This would be a welcome change from the cookie-cutter infill that has been going up all throught the central city since mid-1990s.
