Would you live in a development anchored by a big box store?
« on: October 20, 2020, 09:20:09 pm »
Do you think it has the benefits of urban living with better parking?

Would it depend on the stores in the development?

Do you prefer residential-only neighbourhoods?

Do you like mixed-use living but feel big box-anchored developments are too inauthentic?

Mixed-use developments integrate residential, commercial and industrial real estate into a single, compact site.

For residents, the proximity to shops, restaurants, or even their workplace, promotes walking or biking instead of driving.

Residents in mixed-use developments may enjoy more affordable housing than their suburban counterparts. This is because the housing available is often smaller than in the suburbs.
