Downtown Revitalization

The heart of any community is its downtown, and we are expert in working with communities to bring new life to underperforming centers.  We understand the physical design imperatives of valuable, walkable places and the economic imperatives of the rapidly evolving retail industry, and help our clients craft practical plans to repair frayed public spaces, reform transportation and parking systems, and target new investment in infill development that meets the current economy and future trends.  Our downtown plan experience spans the revitalization of historic downtowns and generating vision plans and implementing codes for new town centers in communities that never had one.  Key elements of our process include incisive background analysis, intensive stakeholder engagement and community outreach, re-envisioning public spaces, matching locally calibrated infill development types to economic realities, and crafting implementation strategies that pair public improvements with private reinvestment.
