Local Markets

  • Oakland, Calif.

    After years of struggling, Oakland is taking back and revitalizing urban areas with a series of transit-oriented development projects.

     
  • Fort Collins, Colo.

    A constant presence on "best of" lists, Fort Collins is adjusting to a population boom by focusing on infill and redevelopment projects.

     
  • Allentown, Pa.

    Visionary planners and developers are turning Allentown, once a steel manufacturing hub, into a cultural and entertainment mecca.

    It's not all space-age technology in Huntsville, home to the Redstone Arsenal and the Marshall Space Flight Center. Sustainability matters, too.

     
  • Las Cruces, N.M.

    You could say Las Cruces is under siege, invaded by hordes of military families and active seniors. As a result, development and home construction are up.

     
  • Bismarck-Mandan, N.D.

    The energy economy is what drives the paired cities of Bismarck and Mandan, the nation's 72nd fastest growing metropolitan area.

     
  • Providence, R.I.

    Providence is steeped in history, but a state budget deficit scrapped the historic tax credit, putting preservation-minded developers in a bind.

     
  • Coral Gables, Fla.

    Coral Gables has always taken development seriously, and if city leaders have their way, it might become a highly sustainable city.

     
  • Middleton, Wis.

    Two decades ago, Middleton adopted a New Urbanist approach to development. The result is a city that still feels manageable, even as it grows.

     
  • Little Rock, Ark.
