In an interview published today in the Spectator, Professor Richard Florida (of Creative Class fame) makes some arguments very similar to what we've been saying in RTH.
On the Pan Am stadium:
You have to build it in the densest area you can. The stadium should be less car-oriented and be able to be used for a variety of uses and events.
The closer to the core, the better. That's where the greatest impact will be but the real challenge is to make it part of the neighbourhood.
On regional transit:
This region is not as big as the big metros of the world. That means we have to get stronger rail links and faster commutes. We have to knit ourselves closer together and transit is the key.
