The overall goal of this project is to stimulate redevelopment in the Study Area at an appropriate scale, commensurate with the Village’s adjoining residential neighborhoods. “While not all sites in the Study Area would be able to achieve this level of build out, allowing a FAR of up to 0.8 would send a clear message and provide incentive to the market to work creatively to maximize its return.” (page 3-4)
2008-07
“The key to the successful retail revitalization of the Harmon District is its ability to attract small independent retailers and perhaps the leasing of small office and studio spaces. The proposed formula for succeeding at this is developing quality commercial spaces that are leased at affordable rents.” (page iii)
