In order to successfully implement mixed-use transit oriented development (TOD) with a distinctive contextual fit, it is essential to take into account the entire area. A TOD must be a woven neighborhood fabric of distinct districts, each with a unique character that together work in harmony to create a true sense of place while fostering economic development. The UDA creates a framework that engages all key stakeholders, including private property owners, in a very inclusive process to help streamline the approval and implementation procedures.
Proactive and inclusive public outreach and engagement enable city leaders to gauge the public reaction throughout the course of revitalization. This is accomplished by emphasizing “Process before Plan,” enabling the community to have an opportunity to feel pride of authorship in the future of their downtown. CSPM, the proprietary grassroots, social networking program run by the CSPM Group, results in a better understanding of the local market, while simultaneously creating support for redevelopment efforts by garnering ideas and insights from local residents, businesses and community stakeholders. CSPM includes the creation of a dedicated website and a local office to be operated throughout the entire implementation process.
Once a comprehensive vision is articulated with full support from the municipality, community stakeholders and master developer that vision must be properly reflected in entitlements and zoning. Renaissance is exceptionally well-versed in Form-Based Zoning, allowing planning, permitting, implementation and construction to be a seamless.
Impact Analysis allows Renaissance Downtowns to measure the growing positive impacts of its commitment to economic, social and environmental initiatives in each neighborhood. It provides an overview of information, data and examples of the impact performance of our projects over a set amount of time. This information allows for each community to see its growth over time and also to garner additional investment potential.
