Town Center Redevelopment

At the risk of giving the impression that I might possibly take any of this design and development wonkishness seriously, below is a piece I wrote for the August 2008 issue of Urban Land magazine.  Apologies for the small print, but since the piece is only available online to paying ULI members, I only have permission to post a scan.

    OMG Dan you’re with GGLO!? Ha! We are much closer to each other than I ever imagined. Good read you put together -my CEO forwarded it to us as mandatory reading.

    Enviro/Smart Land-use group, Futurewise (used to be 1000 Friends of Washington) is mentioning Burien Town Center in an upcoming newsletter. As a resident of that humble…er…city, I am pretty excited about the creation of something approximating a “downtown” here. It’s more than just sharp, new condos and better-than-merely tolerable restaurants (although those help). It’s the sense of community progress; that this is something that while making some developer and several builders some money, also enhances the quality of living in this place.

    Man I wish they’d start doing more of this stuff around here. Economy is worse than advertised, so we’ll have to wait even longer.

    Well done on the arty, Dan’l.

    Good job. I didn’t notice that you were the author when I read it in the magazine earlier this month. (and thanks for listing two of my projects, too!)
