The article discusses the developments made to medical districts in the U.S. Nowadays, a mixed-used development is emerging in medical districts where medical facilities are located with housing. City planning commissions are supporting this mixed use development of these districts. In this endeavor, master plans are very important to guide planners on what to do with the site. Cited as an example of this trend is the Longwood Medical Area, which covers 200 acres of land and is composed of 15 medical colleges, institutes and clinics. INSET: In the Beginning.
