Darien Station StudyServing on a team with the RBA Group, 4ward Planning was commissioned by WestCOG, the Town of Darien, and the Connecticut Department of Transportation to conduct a market and financial feasibility analysis in support of the Darien Noroton Heights Train Station Study. This market analysis entails an examination of socio-economic and labor and industry trends and projections that will allow 4ward Planning to identify and evaluate market-receptive, actionable improvements for the station and surrounding area.
Franklin Twp Market Analysis4ward Planning was retained by Franklin Township, New Jersey, to help develop a community market analysis in support of recommendations for its Corporate Business (CB) district near Interstate 287 and its Hamilton Street Business District. The recommendations developed in the final report will carefully match targeted private investment with market-supportable current and future development opportunities.
Franklin Twp Development4ward Planning was hired by the Township of Franklin, New Jersey, to examine the Township’s current land development process, inclusive of its process for receiving, reviewing, and adjudication of applications and permits associated with commercial and residential development. Township officials hope to gain understanding of the degree to which its current land-use development process is falling short of client expectations, and the service goals and objectives of its planning and zoning offices.
Irishtown Bend RedevelopmentServing on a team led by Michael Baker International, 4ward Planning was hired by the Port of Cleveland to participate in the Irishtown Bend Redevelopment Plan, which will incorporate a new public park, neighborhood connections, transportation planning, development analysis, new internal trails, and links to adjacent trail networks – all in support of revitalization of the 16-acre hillside area along the west bank of the Cuyahoga River.
Morrisville Economic AnalysisRequired by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) to modernize its existing wastewater treatment plant, to comply with current regulatory standards, the Morrisville Municipal Authority (MMA) determined it has two options to meet this requirement: building a new plant on its existing 13-acre site or acquiring an approximate 30-acre tract of land for a new facility. Thus, 4ward Planning was hired to offer the MMA a comprehensive economic analysis of its options, allowing for a well-educated decision.
NJ Transit BIke and PedServing on a team led by NV5, 4ward Planning was hired by New Jersey Transit to assess bicycle and pedestrian accessibility at six selected rail, light rail, and/or bus stations within the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) region. The project focuses on assessment of existing bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure deficiencies and recommendations to support and encourage increased bicycling and walking trips to these transit stations.
NJ Transit Corridor PlanningServing on two separate teams, with the RBA Group and Looney Ricks Kiss, 4ward Planning has and continues to provide on-call socio-economic land-use consulting for various New Jersey Transit projects under its Transit-Friendly Planning Land-Use and Development initiative. 4ward Planning is supporting transportation and economic development planning throughout the New Jersey Transit region, inclusive of socio-economic, labor and industry, real estate, and fiscal and economic impact analyses. 4ward Planning created several supplemental studies for New Jersey Transit - including the Fair Lawn Corridor Concept Analysis, and the Monmouth County Safe Routes to Transit Pilot - both used in guiding the region’s development as its population continues to evolve. These transit-oriented development projects encourage sustainable growth and community revitalization, making them attractive places for people to live and work.
Norristown Riverfront4ward Planning, in partnership with Langan Engineering, was recently hired to prepare a redevelopment planning and feasibility study for the “Riverfront Gateway” area of Norristown, New Jersey. The 20-acre brownfields study area is transitioning from being a high-density residential and warehouse area characterized by substantial vacancy to a retail, mixed-use residential, and recreation destination. 4ward Planning is providing a comprehensive market analysis in support of potential recreational, and mixed-use commercial, residential, and office space development along Norristown’s underutilized Gateway area.
PA Long-Range PlanThe Pennsylvania Commonwealth is preparing a statewide long-range transportation plan update and comprehensive freight movement plan. As part of this work, 4ward Planning is developing a decision-making algorithm which will permit PennDOT policy makers, technical staff, and executives to better allocate limited investment resources within state regions and across transportation modes. The model being developed is informed by economic impact modeling, decision-tree analysis, and socio-economic analysis.
Saugatuck TOD Market StudyAs part of the Barton Partners team of consultants, 4ward Planning has been hired by the Town of Westport, Connecticut, to prepare a transit-oriented development plan for its Saugatuck project area. 4ward Planning’s services include socio-economic, and labor and industry analyses, real estate trends and supply/demand analyses, and financial and fiscal feasibility analyses - offering comprehensive understanding of near- and long-term demand driver trends, and setting forth expectations for TOD market potential and the identification of land-uses which will be most market-receptive in the Saugatuck project area.
Thompsonville TOD StudyThe Town of Enfield, Connecticut, recently hired 4ward Planning to conduct a comprehensive economic development study of its Thompsonville neighborhood, with particular focus on transit-oriented development - as the Town prepares for a new, multi-modal transit center and high-platform rail station along the Hartford Line Commuter Rail Corridor (HLCRC) and intermodal transportation hub.
WRTC Market Study4ward Planning was retained by AECOM to conduct a market study and financial feasibility analysis for the Walter Rand Transportation Center (WRTC), located in Camden, New Jersey. This study is being completed under funding provided by the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) as a Transportation Community Development Initiative (TCDI).
