Earlier this year NJTOD.org had the opportunity to interview a number of officials, planners, developers and other professionals at the annual APA-NJ conference. We asked these practitioners for their views on TOD issues in New Jersey and generally and received a wide variety of opinions on the benefits, challenges, characteristics and opportunities offered by TOD.
This week we feature our chat with Phil Abramson.
In 2014 Mr. Abramson founded Topology, a real estate consulting firm that offers urban planning, development and project management. Prior to this venture, he worked for the Jonathan Rose Company, where he served as senior planner to Morristown, a NJ Transit Village community. Mr. Abramson discusses one specific challenge to TOD, the need to provide good transit.
