Re: General City Planning/Urban Design Thread

Does anybody know of a recent example where a large, undeveloped, urban parcel was cut up into many small, undeveloped, urban parcels and sold off to a variety of developers?

Like, instead of one developer working with hundreds of thousands of square feet, a situation where hundreds of developers work with thousands of square feet each.

I've been thinking about this in the context of RFK stadium and its parking lots in DC. Instead of a huge master development plan, what if that land was cut up like the rest of Capitol Hill (think 2k-5k sf lots) and divvied out to a whole slew of small-time developers and homebuilders.

This is how neighborhoods used to be developed from scratch, no?
