Durkee Street Downtown Revitalization PlanMay 30, 2017
Chazen assisted the City of Plattsburg with the development of a revitalization plan and feasibility study for the Durkee Street property, a 5-acre brownfield site located on the Saranac River in the heart of downtown. The site represents a key opportunity to connect the downtown to the waterfront and create a mixed-use development with a public gathering place for visitors and downtown patrons. The plan focused on creating a food hub and culinary business incubator as well as an urban lifestyle center. Chazen’s scope of work included public outreach and engagement, a market analysis, concept development, consensus building to select a preferred development option, and implementation and funding strategies.
Plattsburg was selected as the North Country Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) winner and was awarded $10M to support the implementation of the Durkee Street project.
