Brother and Sister Create Walkable Neighborhood in Colorado

A brother and sister team bought 40 acres of land in Buena Vista, Colorado, with the intention of creating a whitewater park along the Arkansas River. Instead, they ended up developing a walkable neighborhood called South Main, complete with mixed-use development that connects to the existing downtown. They expected the properties of the first phase of the development to sell out in a year or two. But they actually sold out in a month and a half. South Main has been designed "for people rather than cars," says Katie. :: CNN story via Walkable Neighborhoods
