Southern Gateway Corridor Study
Location: Raleigh, NC
JDavis was hired, along with design team members 1 Over 1 Studio, VHB Engineering, and Permar, to conduct a study for the Southern Gateway Corridor leading into downtown Raleigh, NC. The corridor has functioned as a single mode transportation corridor but has not participated in the robust growth other areas of Raleigh have enjoyed in the last several years. The corridor has a number of strategic assets, not the least of which being its adjacency to the downtown core and readily available redevelopment sites. In June 2013, the Raleigh Urban Design Center developed a Draft Vision Document through public workshops that presents a clear focus for the corridor’s visual character and key development and transportation themes and issues. The Design Team will be analyzing in a more thorough way transportation, streetscape, urban character and land use outcomes reflecting the direction already established by the Vision document and will provide recommendations on addressing the key issues.
