Downtown Revitalization 

Harriman recognizes the critical role of design in making a downtown a place to live, work, and play. Our focus on downtown revitalization is to help reshape the patterns of the built environment and create the uses that are attractive today. Harriman has the expertise to compose the public realm and private reinvestment. We draw on our understanding of the underlying economics that drive patterns of investment. We are attentive to the practical factors that shape feasible solutions – the scale and configuration of parcels, building types, parking and access, walkability and connectivity to available transit and amenities. Our work includes planning for implementation through specialized design guidelines, zoning tools, and assistance structuring development agreements.
