Transit hubs to shape urban pocket in Markham


Christopher Hume reports on the development of Langstaff, a TOD in Markham, Ontario, outside of Toronto.  One of the greatest names in planning, Peter Calthorpe, has been tapped to put the project together.  He calls it “the highest manifestation of transit-oriented development I have been involved in,” particularly amazing considering that he pioneered the concept.  It looks like an awesome project, and I hope it can set an example throughout the rest of the Americas.
