Does anyone out know of any good urban real-estate development and architecture on-line resources or blogs?

I'm looking for sites that aggregate articles on real estate development, particularly creative urban projects. I can't afford the $300+ to read Urban Land, so I'm looking for some lower cost, preferably free alternatives. Topics from related fields such as urban planning and finance and market analysis are also welcome.

Hewn and Hammered (it has some pottery posts at the top, but generally it's more architecture-related), and Pixel Points at ArtsJournal is on architecture. Beyond Brilliance, City Comforts, New Urban Progress, and ArchNewsNow are good reads too. [The last one has a daily email as well!]

These come from Crooked Timber's academic blog roll that was linked in another AskMe question up the page a bit. I just stumbled across them and had remembered your question so I don't know them. (under: 'Architecture/Urban Development')--

City Comforts (urban planning)

Are you looking for information on developments from an academic or investing point-of-view?

The various sites in the construction.com family might have some of what you want - they also do a weekly best-of email.

I third the plug for City Comforts too, I really like it.

junesix : I guess investing - I'm a consultant and my job is advise others on their investments. What I'm looking for is something that tells the story innovative urban projects from the developer's P.O.V.

And I recall askmatrix mentioning that he has a real estate blog, but his profile does not give a url. askmatrix, where are you?

Well thanks for suggesting Hewn & Hammered. I run that site - but I also co-edit, with a number of professional planners, GIS analysts and even a dark side developer type and some academics, Urban Cartography, which might be more useful to you. And City Comforts is always good.
