Ft. Lauderdale Riverwalk TAP Completed
ULI advises city of Fort Lauderdale on resiliency along the city's Riverwalk
The District Council recently presented the Fort Lauderdale City Commission with a two-day Technical Assistance Panel (TAP) report on how to reconfigure a job and transit-rich corridor along the Cypress Creek/I-95 area into a walkable, livable neighborhood. The study was requested by the City of Fort Lauderdale, and funded in part by the ULI Foundation. The panel explored ways to make the area more pedestrian and bike-friendly, as well as insert multi-family housing into the corridor. The reported created a blueprint for short, medium and long term land use and development changes for the corridor.
The Sun-Sentinel recently headlined the study on its front page (Read Article). The panel was co-chaired by Chuck DeSanti of DeSanti & Associates and Sam Poole of Berger Singerman. Other TAP Panelists included Maurice Borrows of FDOT District 4, Ana Gelabert-Sanchez of Gelabert-Sanchez & Associates, Kona Gray of EDSA, Rick Hall of Hall Planning & Engineering, Inc., Larry Hymowitz of FDOT District 4, A. Brian Lomel of TLC Engineering for Architecture, Uri Man of Gables Residential/Florida, Darren J. Morse of Kitson & Partners, LLC, and Suria Yaffar of Zyscovich Architects.
