    Transit Oriented Development in Phoenix | Click to download


    The three projects presented in this transit oriented development (TOD) white paper represent a wide range of involvement in the urban design, planning and architecture of TOD projects. The white paper begins with the Downtown Phoenix Urban Form Project, a master plan and new zoning code encompassing 2.15 square miles of Phoenix’s downtown core and is followed by a recent development in Tempe and an urban infill project in Downtown Phoenix.

    Each project responds to unique, local conditions however, a number of general TOD planning principles have been used throughout.

    - An activated, pedestrian-oriented ground plane
    - Human-scaled building massing to enhance street corridors
    - Incorporation of architectural and natural shade
    - Urban Heat Island mitigation
    - Street hierarchy
    - Multi-use programming
