“We are excited to work collaboratively with GCRTA, the City of Cleveland, and community stakeholders along the West 25th Street Corridor to find solutions to encourage thoughtful transit-oriented development that supports the community and the corridor in the future,” said Craig Sklenar, Senior Urban Designer with Stantec’s Urban Places.
Stantec’s planning work will include developing guidelines for bus station design, zoning, planning policy, regulatory approvals, and extensive public and stakeholder engagement. The plan will also examine the integration between future development opportunities and neighborhood connections, following other successful BRT projects in Cleveland: the HealthLine and the Cleveland State Line.
Stantec’s TOD experts from across North America are collaborating on the plan, which is expected to be complete in the fall of 2020. The GCRTA received federal funding for the plan as part of the Federal Transit Administration’s Pilot Program for TOD Planning.
Stantec’s Urban Places team is involved in numerous TOD projects. The team is working with walkability expert Jeff Speck on a TOD master plan at a Boston area site requiring flexibility on Red Sox game days. Stantec also wrote the business case for a 15-kilometre tramway project along Taschereau Boulevard, a major corridor in Montreal, utilizing innovative planning techniques to showcase the development potential along the corridor.
Communities are fundamental. Whether around the corner or across the globe, they provide a foundation, a sense of place and of belonging. That’s why at Stantec, we always design with community in mind.
We care about the communities we serve—because they’re our communities too. This allows us to assess what’s needed and connect our expertise, to appreciate nuances and envision what’s never been considered, to bring together diverse perspectives so we can collaborate toward a shared success.
We’re designers, engineers, scientists, and project managers, innovating together at the intersection of community, creativity, and client relationships. Balancing these priorities results in projects that advance the quality of life in communities across the globe.
