CNU members and their allies work with communities to build places people love. Human-scale, universally accessible neighborhoods, town centers, streets, and public spaces can only be built with all of our help. We need you to build places people love. Click on the following great place-building examples to find out more about how this is done.


Historic arcade houses young professionals

A code transforms a commercial strip corridor

Columbia Pike Arlington, Virginia

First built over 200 years ago as a toll road connecting Washington, D.C. to greater Virginia, the Columbia Pike now serves as a direct route to the Pentagon and other capital landmarks.
