    Sprawling urban cities often have small or diminishing downtown areas. They also have widespread housing developments located at a distance from the city’s downtown area. Sprawling cities also display suburban characteristics. Certain residential and commercial suburban developments are common, including strip malls and tract housing. Sprawling cities are car-centered; their transportation centers around freeways and the use of personal automobiles.
