Urban Renewal 

Harriman develops urban renewal plans that transform sites and districts through coordinated development that shifts economic value for an entire area. Urban renewal plans help reverse conditions of blight that the private market has been unable to address in an area that is substandard or deteriorating. Our team brings creativity to the process of urban renewal planning in defining the public action or actions that could be undertaken to address the specific conditions identified in the planning process. This creativity requires a rigorous analysis of existing conditions, which include community input, GIS and other spatial data, physical verification of onsite conditions, and specialized analysis such as market studies.
