PATRICK L. PHILLIPS RESUME Continued
analyzed the regional economy and real estate market conditions in Pittsburgh and its sub-markets, to determine the level of economic support for commercial and residential development alternatives. As specific plans emerged for sub-areas of the riverfront, ERA conducted more detailed assessments of appropriate real estate development options, open space programs and public facilities, focusing on market and financial feasibility and economic and fiscal cost and benefits.
Cincinnati Riverfront Master Plan, Cincinnati, OH Project Manager for the development of a land use strategy for the central Cincinnati riverfront. The area is located between two new public stadiums that, together with the required infrastructure and a proposed major museum complex, represent some $600 million in public investment. The challenge for the Advisors was to determine a program of uses for approximately 10 city blocks that takes best advantage of this public investment and that produces a sustainable urban neighborhood in this important part of downtown Cincinnati.
Brooklyn Bridge Park Master Plan, Brooklyn, NY Project Manager for the Brooklyn Bridge Park Project, a planned waterfront park to be developed along 1.3 miles of East River shoreline in Brooklyn, NY. Directly across from lower Manhattan, the project site will be transformed from an industrial pier landscape to a world-class park amenity. Led by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation, the park project is part of a long-term effort to spur economic development while re-connecting New Yorkers with their waterfront. In addition to the park’s varied recreational components, the site will accommodate limited commercial activity designed to offset the park’s operating costs. As part of the project team, ERA is evaluating potential commercial opportunities and recommending an appropriate program mix for the park.
World Trade Center Creative Financing, New York, New York Lead Economist as part of a multi-year engagement with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, ERA recently evaluated alternative financing options for the redevelopment of the former World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan. The work was based on the estimated magnitude of incremental taxes generated by various uses at the site.
