Interesting Article

I googled and found an interesting article about New Urbanism that was in the New Urban News.  One function of new urbanism that I believe is misunderstood and too often miscalculated in developments is the mixed use aspect of projects.  This article states, I think correctly, that the commercial portion of a mixed use project should be able to stand on its own, even if there were no mixed use component as a part of it.  Sadly, I think too many people force commercial development into a mixed use project when it should not have any.  The laws of economics still prevail in mixed use and suburban developments.  The picture is the site a future commercial new urbanism project. 

Let me know your thoughts about this article.
