For the first time in generations, urban areas in all corners of the country are experiencing job growth and net population gains. People of diverse ages and backgrounds are beginning to notice—and value—the qualities of older neighborhoods and commercial corridors: walkable streets alive with cultural vitality; distinct blocks of architectural diversity; and flexible, adaptable buildings offering space for local entrepreneurs. The contributions of older buildings and blocks are not merely nice-to-have neighborhood amenities. They are increasingly seen as essential to the success of American cities.
With this report, the National Trust for Historic Preservation launches a new resource for city leaders and urban advocates to deepen understanding of the cities they love. Developed by the Preservation Green Lab, the Atlas of ReUrbanism uses increasingly accessible data about cities to explore the connections between the physical character of urban development and a range of economic, social, and environmental outcomes. Whether you’re a mayor, planner, developer, or advocate, the Atlas of ReUrbanism offers detailed information about buildings and blocks in American cities and the people, businesses, and vitality they support.
