🔗 What About “15-Minute Suburbs”? - by Addison Del Mastro:

…if your suburban community is really dense enough and amenity-rich enough that a 10- or 15-minute drive gets you pretty much everywhere you need to go—with the exception of work, because the geography of offices makes it pretty hard for everyone to have that short a commute—then you’re already somewhere on the urbanist spectrum.

I want to like this idea, but I think as soon as you have people making a longer driving commute to work, they are just going to rely upon their cars for everything. I get meeting people where they are, but that approach here doesn’t seem like it will get us anywhere.
