According to a new study from COMMERCIALCafé, Dallas leads the way as the city in the United States with the highest potential for urban infill development. The results are based on the total developable vacant land available in each city’s central business district.
Dallas has a total of 86.37 acres of developable land in its central business district, 11 more than the second place city of Las Vegas, which has 75.16 acres. Austin (70.72), San Antonio (42.39), and Phoenix (31.03) round out the top five.
An additional COMMERCIALCafé survey asked individuals living in the top 25 cities what they want to see built in their city’s urban core and what they felt the city needs most. Affordable housing was the most common answer for what a given respondent’s city needs at 82%. Housing and parks were the most desired improvements at 77%. Additionally, walkability was the top infrastructure improvement highlighted in all 25 cities.
