9780071603218: Land Development Calculations: Interactive Tools and Techniques for Site Planning, Analysis, and Design

The best resource available for creating and evaluating development leadership, planning, and design alternatives

Fully revised and updated, this essential reference enables you to compare development capacity options and costs for vacant and previously developed land in less time than it now takes to draw one option.

Land Development Calculations, Second Edition, introduces the language of city design with 40 forecast models that predict the choices available to shelter human activity within limits. This expanded ability to compare options in a shorter time frame will lead to more informed leadership and investment.

This definitive volume offers:

  • 40 interactive forecast models on a CD-ROM that predict residential, nonresidential, and hybrid development alternatives from values entered in their design specification templates
  • Case studies and context records, with photographs and plans, illustrating the application of development capacity evaluation to real-world issues
  • Precise methods of expressing development options and strategies
  • Accurate processes for defining strategic development decisions
  • Consistent ability to convert decisions into prescriptions that achieve intended results
  • A classification system for the built environment

Book Description:

The book addresses two fundamental questions: If there is an available site, how much can be built on the land available? If the project comes first, how much land is needed to accommodate it? With these spreadsheets, development design options can be explored in a fraction of the time required to create even a single site plan. How to use:
* Select between nonresidential and residential projects, then chooses the type of parking that will be provided--parking capacity is the primary determinant of land use capacity.
* This decision tree then directs the user to the appropriate spreadsheet, where variables such as gross lot area, buildable and unbuildable areas, parking and loading, open space, roadways, tax data, water and utility fees, building floors and height, and other data are entered in order to forecast capacity and economic yield.
* Design specifications can be changed within a single spreadsheet or entered into two or more spreadsheets for comparative purposes.
* Each development scenario is illustrated by a real-world case study, which identifies and measures the design criteria that actually control the results obtained and also shows how alternative development options would affect the project results.
