In Delhi Township, southwest of Cincinnati, we’re leading the redevelopment planning for a two-mile, car-oriented corridor. The goal? Transform an existing strip-retail environment into a walkable, environmentally friendly, aesthetic main street/town square.
With the team’s specialization in market-driven plans, they completed an early-stage analysis to gauge unmet demand—to figure out what could be harnessed to power the plan. They discovered that the area, over the first five years, could support new medical offices, new small retail, and multifamily housing. Plus, the nearby St. Joseph’s University expressed interest in building graduate student housing within the area.
After public meetings, workshops, and stakeholder interviews, our team blended the market analysis results with an understanding of how current residents wanted the new growth to unfold. The result was a plan that would improve the existing area while also guiding future private development and public improvements.
