Norwalk Reed Putnam Urban Renewal Plan

Norwalk, Connecticut

Harriman revised and restated the original urban renewal plan for the Reed Putnam Project Area in order to provide a better fit between the goals of the community and the development opportunities available. This included matching development parcels with prospective users and better articulation of objectives relating to urban design and landscape requirements in order to ensure development of a high quality environment consistent with the long-term planning goals of the City. The urban renewal plan included approximately 2 million square feet of development, with a significant concentration of mid-rise office space. Building, streetscape, and landscape guidelines were established, as well as the reconfiguration of the streets and utilities serving the area.
