Guide to Joint Development for Public Transportation Agencies

The objective of this study was to produce a guide that facilitates and enhances the successful delivery of joint development projects. This includes requirements, procedures, and tools and techniques for transit agencies that want to pursue or improve their joint development programs. The guide serves agencies with a range of experience related to land use planning issues and/or in executing complex real estate transactions. In general, the research plan included the following: an extensive library of previous Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP), National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP), and other studies. The plan addressed the following : (1) A review of existing guidance, regulations, and experience; (2) A review of literature from industry associations, academia, and other relevant sources; (3) Identifying and extracting lessons observed from relevant U.S. and international experience; (4) An assessment of the organizational structure managing transit-related real estate and development programs, and how that structure interacts with the external, private development community; (5) Input from key individuals involved in the joint development process selected from federal agencies, transit agencies, municipalities, public and private developers, the finance community, and other relevant experts; and (6) A review of documents related to specific joint development projects.
