An in-depth look at how a mid-size city, the State’s 2nd largest university, regional public transit, and private developers collaborated during the economic downturn to link a declining city district with the university’s campus. Utilizing over $110 million in public and private investments, the effort transformed a four block area into the new home for multiple corporate headquarters, 15+ shops and restaurants, high-end residential, hotel, and publicly funded parking garage.
