To preserve, create and maintain a sustainable, economically competitive, and equitable bi-state region.
A Draft Market Analysis of the Knowledge Corridor—Task Four Data Gathering and Analysis Report has been completed, and was presented to station area municipalities and other stakeholders during the week of December 10, 2012. The presentations can be downloaded via the links below. The full report will be completed in mid 2013.
Market Analysis for the region’s Bus Rapid Transit and Rail Corridors
This task will assess and provide realistic expectations of what level and type of development may be supported near bus rapid transit and passenger rail stations in the Knowledge Corridor. The broad goal is to improve understanding of the individual transit oriented development (TOD) opportunities that exist and how they may best fit into the regional economic context. This task will generate recommendations regarding the mix of uses that may be appropriate at individual station locations.
For the purposes of this effort, transit oriented development is defined to include these key characteristics: compact development, mixed use, high quality pedestrian environments, public space, effective bicycle and pedestrian linkages, and parking management. Current best practices in transit-oriented development are listed here, compiled by the Center for Transit-Oriented Development (CTOD), which is a Sustainable Knowledge Corridor project partner.
Stations to be included in this work include all New Britain-Hartford Busway stations, plus the existing and proposed passenger rail stations in these towns: Berlin, CT, Newington CT, West Hartford CT, Hartford, Windsor CT, Windsor Locks CT, Enfield CT, Springfield MA, Holyoke MA and Northampton MA.
