Transit Oriented Development                                                                                                                                       The Chicago Southland Transit-Oriented Development Corridor Development Project is evaluating and assigning corridor station areas a TOD topology based on their respective conformance to identified TOD typologies while taking into consideration individual community desires for future development around the stations.  By creating groupings of stations along corridors combining types of TODs, the TOD project will better engage developers by providing a larger scale of projects that match particular developer’s expertise to types of TOD Stations.  This presentation will provide an overview of how this project can create ongoing relationships with developers to spur additional TOD in the Southland.                                        Ron Lanz, LandVision  http://www.landvision.com/
