    To unite and revitalize Evanston, Cincinnati through transit oriented development (TOD), walkable streets, and safe neighborhoods; To promote the communitys ethos - education - by connecting each educational institution to light rail transit stations and trailheads by designated pronounced bike and pedestrian corridors; To redesign Keystone Parke and the parcels between Dana Ave and Lexington Ave into a thriving mixed use TOD

    I71 is extremely close to residential parcels, creating noise pollution which is proven to be detriminetal to health

    Large parcels make aquisition of land-simpler

    I71 provides great visibility to future development at Keystone Parke

    Lively street art embraces the neighborhoods character

    New construction ajacent to the Evan-ston Rec Center can create a gateway into the TOD

    Axis and DensicationTransit Oriented Development - Evanston

    As the trend toward moving back into the city continues, transit oriented developments (TODs) are innovative design initiatives to sustain population growth by reducing the need to drive. The Evanston TOD which surrounds a proposed Wasson Way light rail station provides a community of housing, shopping, working, and educating.

    This TOD has two major goals. The rst is to unite Evanston and Norwood, OH through a strong linear axis that runs from the northern entry of the LTR station directly to the Beau Arts pavilion of a newly renovated Evanston Playground. The second is to reect Cincinnatis trend of dense development along I71. The tall commercial buildings create an iconic view from the highway to draw visitors into the TOD.

    The Beverly - Portland, OR5 story mixed use building. Bank and grocer on 1st. Parking on 2nd, residential on top 2 oors with rooftop courtyard. The court yard plays an instrumental role in creating intima-cy between residents. The Beverly can be applied to build-ing 2B.

    London, EnglandCondos that resemble the exist-ing homes of Norwood are vital in integrating new develop-ment in
