Beyond the Station: Transit Oriented Development
As communities and metropolitan regions confront the limits of auto-dependency and pursue more sustainable patterns of growth, the value of public transit grows clearer by the day. EE&K’s commitment to helping communities and public agencies fully realize the value of their investments in transportation is fundamental to our outlook. We believe that integrating transit facilities with the surrounding urban fabric is not only central to producing a superior passenger experience, but also the most effective approach to leveraging the value of transit. Successful transit-oriented development is ultimately a collaborative effort that requires the participation of a variety of players.

EE&K’s diverse portfolio has given us an understanding of the needs of municipalities, transit agencies and developers alike. Our approach emphasizes the small-scale and the potential of transit to function as places of arrival. We know how to maintain station access while maximizing opportunities for development. We bring these skills to the complex problems presented by joint development , downtown redevelopment, and large-scale designs for transit-oriented communities.
