Urban Life Sustains Us.

From Architectural Record, how the rough economy will strengthen our cities. Strengthening and bringing new engaging business into neighborhoods makes these villages more attractive and economical. You don't have to leave home to find something interesting and worth going to, and it is super healthy to get out and walk around. Well-maintained or newly constructed residential units compete very well on the residential market, and adding some more of these brings in more energy and diversity now as a preferred choice.
