Abstract: The focus of this research is the urban commercial corridor and the relationship between vehicle transportation routes and surrounding land use and development patterns. Due to their arbitrary and haphazard development, under utilization, and poor connections to the surrounding residential neighborhoods commercial corridors often represent transit unfriendly environments. It is, however, hypothesized that retrofit, reinvestment and intensification could enhance the transit potential of corridors. The study examines three case study corridors in Los Angeles and investigates land use and policy frameworks, zoning regulations, and design guidelines that can better support existing or future transit.
