Long Wharf Responsible Growth Plan
Langan assisted Perkins Eastman in developing a responsible growth plan for the Long Wharf area of New Haven. The goal of the project is to support the social and economic development of the Long Wharf District through strategic focus on coastal resiliency, progressive economic strategies, and community development. To accomplish this goal, the design team provided the city with a multiple district concept; strategic economic plan; a design for streetscape improvements; and a transportation plan, highlighted by a new greenway connecting the districts together and to the surrounding neighborhoods. Langan brought our local knowledge of the area to the team; providing an assessment of existing site constraints, proposed trip generation, transportation planning, pedestrian and bicycle circulation, shuttle bus routing, design concepts for a new stormwater linear park, and cost estimating for enabling infrastructure projects.
