Drachman Institute

In 2013, Drachman Institute contracted with the Arizona Department of Housing to 1) compile information and data on existing conditions and plans along High Capacity Transit corridors linking five jurisdictions in Eastern Pima County, with specific focus on potential station areas; and 2) provide information to assist those jurisdictions in Eastern Pima County in planning for potential development with affordable and mixed-income housing along those corridors, including a Market Study of Transit Oriented Housing Demand. On August 15, 2014, the final project was presented to the public. Click on the links below to access the reports by jurisdiction, the BAE Urban Economics Housing Demand Study, and the August 15th public presentation.
