Mixed-Use

Trammell Crow Company has demonstrated an expertise in developing mixed-use properties that offer a sophisticated blend of private, public and commercial spaces.

Benefits of mixed use development include:

Environmental Responsibility:

  • greater housing variety and density
  • reduced distances between housing, workplaces, retail businesses, and other destinations
  • more compact development
  • stronger neighborhood character
  • pedestrian and bicycle-friendly environments

Mixed-use development creates multi-dimensional, pedestrian-oriented places that layer compatible land uses, public amenities, and utilities together at various scales and intensities. This variety of uses allows for people to live, work, play and shop in one place, which then becomes a destination for people from other neighborhoods. Mixed-use projects can take on many forms, including vertical mixed-use buildings, horizontal mixed-use blocks; or mixed-use walkable neighborhoods.

We believe mixed-use development contributes to smart growth, and TCC advocates compact, transit-oriented, walkable, bicycle-friendly land use, including neighborhood schools, complete streets, and mixed-use development with a range of housing choices. We believe that smart growth achieves a unique sense of community and place, expands the range of transportation, employment, and housing choices, equitably distributes the costs and benefits of development and preserves and enhances natural and cultural resources along with promoting public health.
