Travis put it well. Roberto, if you want to try to influence him, more power to you; at best, though, I think you'd be making a bad development slightly less bad. Do we really want more greenfield construction, no matter how "green" the construction, given that the urban cores of so many cities (especially in the Rust Belt) could be repaired to greater effect without the need to pave over wild land?
As for infrastructure, no, not at all. When infrastructure is built over time, the decay happens over time, and it is possible to maintain things because they don't all wear out at the same time. When it is built all at once, maintenance tends to be deferred until it all comes due at once - and then the resources often aren't available to repair it. See the "Suburban Fallacy" concept at Strong Towns.
