Here's the best explanation as to why urbanization is coming to the suburbs and what to expect.

Written by a former Media resident
Here's a compelling explanation as to why urbanization (aka hipsterbia) is coming to local communities like Media, PA and why developers like Arcadia (West End Flats Project) are advocating these formats.

A former Media resident, who is an expert on the matter and recently wrote a book on the subject, tells what we can expect and why suburbia is coming to an end as we know it.

In The End of the Suburbs journalist Leigh Gallagher traces the rise and fall of American suburbia from the stately railroad suburbs that sprung up outside American cities in the 19th and early 20th centuries to current-day sprawling exurbs where residents spend as much as four hours each day commuting. Along the way she shows why suburbia was unsustainable from the start and explores the hundreds of new, alternative communities that are springing up around the country and promise to reshape our way of life for the better.
