Hidden in Plain Sight: Capturing the Demand for Housing Near Transit

More News & Resources:

This study by the Center for Transit-Oriented Development shows that demographics and other trends will cause the potential demand for compact housing near transit to more than double by 2025. This means that more than 14.6 million households will be looking to rent or buy near transit, and meeting this demand would require building 2,100 residential units near each of the 3,971 stations in the U.S. today. The study was conducted for the Federal Transit Administration and ranks metro regions according to the development potential.
