Amsterdam Transit Oriented Development
Chazen worked as part of a project team to select the new location of the Amtrak Station in the City of Amsterdam and develop a Transit Oriented Development (TOD) plan.
Amsterdam has a highly urbanized downtown which has experienced decades of decline and loss of employment. Separated from the Mohawk River and divided by a series of highways, Amsterdam is seeking to develop a multi-modal transportation hub with the selection of a new train station. This plan will frame future investment in revitalizing the City.
Chazen is leading the urban design component, developing an illustrative plan and the framework for a form based code. Our work also includes assisting with community engagement, strategies for key redevelopment sites, and a funding and implementation strategy.
