City of New Brighton Streetscape and Downtown Redevelopment
Loucks prepared plans for the redevelopment of the downtown City Center area of New Brighton. Scope included coordination of site plans and design objectives for new housing and office development, a senior care facility and a new community center.
The city also invested significant time and money in creating a downtown focal point by renovating 5th Avenue near City Hall. This effort involved the redevelopment of a contaminated site on the outer edge of the downtown central business district. As project manager for both the commercial redevelopment site plan and streetscape enhancement, Loucks helped create a seamless design theme that was functional for all users. Initial response to the project was outstanding and the redevelopment effort was designed to be phased over many years.
