RCLCO Suburb Atlas

Welcome to RCLCO’s suburb atlas, a new, interactive visualization of U.S. suburbs. The atlas classifies the suburbs in the top 50 metropolitan areas in the U.S. based on the key factors that define their housing markets. RCLCO developed the atlas to complement Housing in the Evolving American Suburb, published by the ULI Terwilliger Center for Housing.

For a summary of the key findings in the report and additional applications of the mapping tool, click here.

You can explore the suburb atlas just like any other online map by scrolling to zoom, clicking and dragging to pan, and using the search bar to find a particular address. If your search takes you in so close to your site that the colors disappear, just zoom out a little bit to see the color-coded classification.

Note: Since the publication of Housing in the Evolving American Suburb, RCLCO has added and combined geographies in order to better reflect the regional economies and housing markets of the 50 largest metropolitan areas. For example, RCLCO added Durham, NC to the existing Raleigh, NC metropolitan area. In addition to these changes, RCLCO has also added five new metropolitan areas that were not included in the original ULI report: Charleston, SC; Norwich, CT; Santa Barbara, CA; Trenton, NJ; and Tucson, AZ.
