Density Without Urbanism

  1. Santana row looks interesting! It’s a little too commercial (it looks like the only things you can do over there are: buying an apartment, shop and work in a corporate shop), but it’s also well connected to the residential areas east and west. So, right now you have a bunch of houses from which you can walk or bike to a (corporate) downtown. And if you need to leave, connect to light rail and so on, you have buses 23, 60 and 323. So, in the neighborhood east and west of Santana Row, you can live without a car, and have a house you can own, modify, and adapt to your needs.

    I’m planning to build something like the LA Ecovillage you describe on https://granolashotgun.com/2014/06/23/the-hippie-guide-to-conservative-economics/ . At the moment I’m looking for a piece of land to buy, and locations like these (a suburb with a corporate downtown next to it, and with all-day transit) are my favourite choices.
