Residential Development Shifts Toward Urban Centers

Contact (News Media Only): Dave Ryan, (202) 564-4355 / ryan.-@epa.gov

Washington, D.C. - Feb. 27, 2009
EPA is today releasing a new report, “Residential Construction Trends in
America’s Metropolitan Regions,” which examines building trends in the
50 largest metropolitan areas from 1990 to 2007. The report shows that
while a large share of new residential construction still takes place on
previously undeveloped land at the urban fringe, more than half of the
county’s larger metro regions have seen a sharp increase in residential
building in urban core areas. EPA believes this trend reflects growing
appreciation in many communities for smart growth development that
reuses already developed property and infrastructure, protects air and
water quality, and preserves natural lands and critical environmental
areas.
