Where is the Café ? The challenge of making retail uses viable in mixed-use suburban developments

Auteurs :
GRANT, J.
PERROTT, K.

Description :
The paper explores the challenges that planners, developers and municipal councillors encounter in trying to implement retail uses as part of the mix in suburban areas of three Canadian cities. Planners employ evolutionary theories of urban development to naturalise their normative visions of walkable and sociable communities. By contrast, developers point to consumer behaviour to explain why planners' ideas on mix do not work.
