Developing Innovation Village, Baltimore
MetadataShow full item record
We researched the Innovation Village in Baltimore City to better understand which areas are most suitable for development, how accessible public transportation is within the area, the extent of community resources available, and the current employment environment. We used housing vacancy, property values, and access to rail transit to develop a suitability analysis for development. By creating a map of 1/4-mile transit buffers, we were able to determine pedestrian accessibility to different parts of the Innovation Village resources. With maps showing the transit, employment and property value context, we hope to aid in the decision-making process for economic development, while encouraging strategies that encourage hiring programs for current residents and preventing displacement.
