Last sold for $4.2 million in 1996. Includes the only remaining sandy beach on the southern coastline since Haleakala’s last lava flows in the 1750s. It also includes the remains of an old Hawaiian church.

    As I understand Hawaii law, the beaches are all public. In fact, you can camp on the beach if you are fishing. However, the bay is a nature preserve so there is no fishing there. It still appears you could boat into Bezos' private beach and chill for the day. Pretty gross we let humans privately own places as beautiful and unique as this.

    Houston is the 25th most densely populated metro region in the US. Dallas is 19th. Both are more dense than other supposedly well-planned urban areas; Seattle (27), Minneapolis (31), Portland (84), Denver (96), and Salt Lake City (371). Houston is also one of the least white, most diverse, metro areas in the US, less white than Dallas.

    Of US cities, only NY and LA metro regions have a population density above 2,000 people per square mile. Compare that to other international metro regions; Tokyo, Barcelona, Moscow, Buenos Aires all with over 12,000. London and Madrid over 13,000. Singapore, St. Petersberg, Santiago, and Mexico City, 21,000. Mumbai, the most dense urban region is over 76,000.

    where the fuck did you get the idea Minneapolis was well planned for today?

    it stopped caring in the 1950s/1960s, really. Not much different than Seattle or PDX, the scanditrash emigrants liked the fucked up death of the dream

    The conclusion of the article states that the place does indeed have a soul. The soul of any place is defined by the people that populate it and not some outsiders expectations of its aesthetics. Did you only look at the pictures, dipshit?

    Um, yeah, maybe you missed this, Mr. Rogers.

    "At the macro level is is a souless town. A patchwork of cocooned gated communities connected by brutal “transportation!”

    In many ways it is the first step towards the hated and roundly mocked future our politicians seem to want for us. One where plebes live in pods watching content, while hooked up to a bug slurry IV. But instead of bug slurry, it is Buffalo Wild Wings, which you have to drive to first before it can be injected into you.

    Everyone involved — city planners, the politicians, Disney, developers — have done their best to make Orlando a place devoid of organic community. They have done their best to build a city that squeezes out the human soul."

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    Ask not what your collective can do for you, ask what you can do for your collective.

    "When I spoke with the developer of Serenbe, an affluent community outside Atlanta being built on traditional town design principles, he told me that the public investment required to build in that way offers a 60% savings over conventional suburbia. Let me stress that: Urbanism is substantially cheaper to build than suburbia. (So why is Serenbe an affluent community? If you've been reading this far, you know the answer.)"

    It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.
