Title: Re: E-M:/ Developer pushes 'new urbanism' proposal
"New urbanism" is basically old, pre WW2 or even pre-20th C  townbuilding.  Developers like it because of the density - they can fit more houses on less property.  They also save big time on infrastructure costs and get a very marketable result.
