Urban arterials, the oft-neglected spaces of cities where there is a convergence of a multitude of land uses and vast systems of infrastructure and mobility, can become significant sites of sustainable transformation. A hybrid form/performance-based code can negotiate these complex, multi-jusridictional spaces towards an ecologically-, equitably- and economically balanced future. A significant portion of the transformation can occur through a reconsideration of infrastructure that is located within the space of the corridor by taking single-use systems and retooling them for multifunctional benefits (Gaffney 2009, 3).
