What’s the Big Idea?

Let’s start with real estateCars (the Henry Ford kind) completely reshaped the built environment of the United Statesgiving us the suburbs and shopping malls and pulling people out of cities. What will self-driving cars do to our cities and suburbs? Surely something equally as dramatic.

  1. It was surprising to learn that increased mobility will see the population move farther out from city centers.
  2. Interesting that data shows that the value of real estate between 30-60 minutes from the city center will see the greatest shifts in value.
