Title: Urban Resurrection
Author: Leidholm, Dustin
Abstract: Communities are becoming increasingly aware that current trends of expansive growth are not sustainable. Infill development, or the development of vacant or under-utilized sites within urban areas, can be an alternative to sprawl. In many areas around the country, new ideas are being formulated by looking at codes and policies that shape the way a city grows. This thesis intends to look into ways that infill projects may become feasible to developers and appealing to those using and living in the area, while strengthening existing neighborhoods. This project will look into the outcome of rail consolidation in Fargo. Removal of the northern Prosper Subdivision track would create an opportunity for revitalization of surrounding neighborhoods, as well as creating new downtown lots available for development. This will be done in accordance with, in support of, and in addition to the existing Downtown Framework Plan. The typology of the project is a pedestrian focused mixed-use urban infill project that includes residential, commercial, and integrated light industrial uses.
