Urban Planning and Community Revitalization
Studio Luz was engaged for assistance by MassDevelopment TDI to perform a planning study in an effort to revitalize the historic business districts in 13 cities in Massachusetts. Our study and report sought to identify significant community anchors, local economy resources, wealth building assets and under-utilized areas in need of development. Acting as a technical architect, Studio Luz worked with MassDevelopment TDI to implement a long-term development plan that will revitalize the disparate parts of the city and activate the under-utilized portions of these cities.
