Transit Oriented Development (TOD)
Transit Oriented Developments (TODs) are dense, walkable, mixed-use communities designed for easy access and circulation to a nearby transit station.
Charlier Associates assisted Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company (DPZ) on a large TOD implementation project for Phoenix, AZ. Reinvent PHX is a collaborative partnership between the City of Phoenix, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Arizona State University, St. Luke’s Health Initiatives and other local organizations. The focus of the project is to develop sustainability action plans for five districts along the existing light rail line in Phoenix, AZ using a holistic community engagement process.
