The article discusses how the economic recession has affected new urbanist projects in the U.S. In Las Vegas, Nevada, some of the new urbanism projects planned are the Village at Centennial Springs and the Inspirada subdivision from Focus Property Group. According to the author, these projects have been interrupted by market reality. Despite this, real estate executives in the region are still optimistic that limitations such as a declining supply of open land will eventually force the higher densities that come with new urbanism.
