CLIENT:

Port Authority – port master plan; port property section

LOCATION:

USA

CHALLENGE:

Under rapidly changing market conditions assisting a global engineering company to better identify challenges, identify opportunities and develop solutions to better manage the future of a 3,000-acre, privately owned, voluntary port overlay zone area that clearly was increasingly becoming feasible development sites for non-port uses.

SOLUTION:

Identify real (versus perceived) issues with the voluntary port overlay zone, as it relates to the port; assess the real property needs for the port in the next twenty years; develop an alternative development plan for the area to be presented to the municipality for approval of a new, smaller, port area but with more definitive port related uses.

THE NET RESULTS:

The port could protect the strategic areas surrounding it for port related uses that would serve its expansion needs for decades to come.
