Grading Miami's New Urbanist Experiment

In 2009, Miami became the first major American city to adopt a New Urbanist zoning code.  Sean McCaughan of The Architect's Newspaper reviews the highs and lows of the code's first three years.  McCaughan critiques the plan's inability to address public transportation, parking requirements, and ugly public buildings.  On the positives side, McCaughan argues that the code strengths are "urban infill, density, and the vitality of the pedestrian experience at the neighborhood level."
