The following are tweet-casts of the Atypical Building Types session at CNU22 in Buffalo last week. I’ve edited the tweets lightly whenever I remembered something else the speaker said.
• Simple, flexible, & replicable: those are our new flex-building ideals.
• We want to be able to aggregate buildings in small increments because that’s what makes financing work in today’s market.
• The keys to making incremental buildings work are paying attention to fronts, backs, & shared courtyards.
• The most adaptable buildings are a designed on a single chassis that allows many buildouts over time.
• I’ll talk about Baldwin Park and several types we use that have good vertical mix.
• We’re all about getting stuff implemented, not just being theoretical.
• Building type choice is one of the most important, if not the single most important, decision we ever make in place-making.
• New types need to be “better than market” to really show the success of the type, otherwise nobody will take a chance on building them if they’re not more compelling.
