    Is this a concept or something they want to build. They don’t seem to have a lot of parking for all the people. Still I don’t care either way. I’ve been rather dismissive of new urbanism.

Even mixed used developments fail to understand convenient parking drives retail and residential, no matter how pedestrian friendly we try to make towns and cities. In Fort Worth for instance built a 10 story garage next to pretty historic office building but the garage has a facade to make it more attractive.
