"Lazy Man Planning" benefits developer (From the experts at CNU XIV)

Traditional street grids, including alleys, provide greater marketplace flexibility for developers. David Pace, developer of Baldwin Park, refers to it as “Lazy-Man Planning.” With a 120’ deep block structure, he can vary the lot WIDTH as needed for whatever product happens to be most marketable at a given moment in time. He is able to sell a variety of house types, townhouses, live-work units, or apartment buildings all designed to fit the 120’ depth.
