In the just-released WalkUP Wake-Up Call: Michigan Metros, Smart Growth America looks at development in seven Michigan metropolitan areas: Detroit-Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids-Muskegon-Holland, Lansing, Jackson, Kalamazoo-Battle Creek, Saginaw-Bay City-Midland, and Flint. Their analysis finds that in the current real estate cycle, 22 percent of all new income property development located in the 2.7 percent of land that is walkable urban, up from 6 percent in the 1990s and 12 percent from 2001-2008.
