I am a researcher with the Center for Urban and Regional Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am considering using CityEngine in a project (still in the planning and fundraising stages) that will investigate how to retrofit neighborhoods to increase their suitability to older adult residents. Please contact me if you have expertise with CityEngine and if you might be interested in this project. Brian J. Morton, Ph.D. Staff - Center for Urban and Regional Studies

Hi Brian,

CityEngine is perfect for that project. I've notified a few people here who should contact you soon.

Hi Brian,

This seems like an interesting project, and my inner planner definitely sees the potential for GIS and CityEngine to provide scenario building capabilities for such a project. If you are interested in transportation elements we recently released a complete streets example that might have some rules of interest when you start your project. The one I developed was the Complete_Street.CGA rule. It might help with some basic treatments like creating high visibility crosswalks, providing street trees, providing street furniture such as benches to provide places to sit, and represent many multimodal components for streets including bike lanes, buffers, bus lanes,medians, and on-street parking (with parklets).
If you want to look at streets closely in your project and want to use this rule, I am available to answer questions about it.
