This is a type of Urban Development with physically integrated functions; residential, commercial and institutional components. (Industrial uses are not included in this case). Pedestrian friendly connections are part of these developments. We refer in this case to the mix of uses within the single property as opposed to mix of uses in defined areas that as a whole compose a mixed-use district. This aspect, to some extent is present in the area.
A 400mts. radius area is defined as the high density area and a 800mts. one as the medium to low density zone. The walkable radius of 400mts. represents a 5-7 minute walk, while the 800mts. radius equals to 12-15 minute walk. These are general guidelines as topography, quality of pedestrian environment, and legibility play a role in these estimates.
