What is New Urbanism?
A traditional neighborhood design for those with modern, sophisticated sensibilities.
New Urbanism is a logical return to the self-contained, close-knit, traditional neighborhood design rather than the spread-out, car-dependent lifestyle of suburbia. New Urbanism is synonymous with convenience and pedestrian-friendly. It’s also variety-filled – with vibrant, shared public spaces and an array of housing choices. Careful planning puts everyone’s daily desires within easy reach – and key goods, services, events and friends all within a 5-minute walk.
Among New Urbanism’s core principles are:
Walkability – pedestrian-friendly streets with wide sidewalks; residential and commercial areas combined.
Mix – home styles are mixed together, adjoining the shops and professional services of the neighborhood.
Community – interaction among community residents is easier, since residences are close to each other and public spaces are plentiful and inviting.
