Being from Philly, why wouldn't N. Philly be prime redevelopment potential? The waterfront?

Of course it does but I wouldn't rank it ahead of cities like Houston, Dallas, and Atlanta that have a greater opportunity to have a lot more infilling in it's city limits.

Quality, not quantity was what I was going for in the thread.

I chose D.C. cus I feell like its filling up with apartment buildings fast, but Atlanta's beltline project is creating extreme infill around this area. I think Atlanta has some of the most ambitious projects like the beltline, Ponce City Market, etc.

I feel like Seattle should be included in this poll, So should Austin! I didn't really see much infill in Miami last time I was there, I could be wrong but it just wasn't noticable if it was happening. I feel like they're just forever building along the Florida coast.

If only we could put those cities in and take out Philly, NYC, and Chicago.

I'd say DC since infill is basically the only option at this point and it's mostly filler too (no real landmark buildings, mostly residential in formerly abandoned small lots on major arterial roads).

Dallas and Fort Worth should be split up in this.

But it's hard for me to choose between DC and Houston. I like what both cities are doing.

Miami already has more infill than mos Southern cities. Miami is more in gentrification mode than anything. Neighborhoods like Brownsville r getting face-lifts with new transit, but other than that, how do you infill places like Little Havana.

For Philly think North Philly.Plenty of vacant houses and half tore down row house for blocks.many areas of the town need developing.As Philly is growing agai these areas will be more esireable as investors and gentrifyers will be looking for deals.
