His core message

  • follow his Three Rules Of Urban Design:

    • build to the Side Walk/property line

    • make the building front "permeable" (connect the inside to the Side Walk with windows and doors)

    • prohibit Parking in front of building (he's referring to onsite lots; Street Parking is OK)

  • Favor states which will consider a Libertarian answer

  • Hang great architecture
