Project:

Main Street Retail Study - Roosevelt Island, NY

Client:

Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation (RIOC),New York,NY

Overview

RIOC retained PPG to conduct a retail market analysis and planning study to help Main Street realize its potential as the true town center of Roosevelt Island. The report revealed significant potential for more retail on Main Street and recommended a series of policy and urban design interventions to revitalize the commercial district.

Results

Within one year of the completion of the study, RIOC moved forward with a central recommendation of the report by soliciting proposals for a master leaseholder for the Main Street retail space.
