Anaheim is ready for a downtown, and now they're building up, up, up. The Investors Business Daily reports on Anaheim's attempts to form a new high-rise laden downtown out of a low-rise skyline (save for the Matterhorn). Eleven high rise towers are planned in Anaheim, some as tall as 38-stories.
"What's being created is an urban village or a new downtown that will surround sports and entertainment facilities," said John Nicoletti, a spokesman for the Anaheim city council. The article goes on to discuss the use of infill development all over Southern California and in older East Coast cities to remake skylines or make new ones in order to meet housing demand and create density.
