Corridor Revitalization

Our corridor projects focus on land use, site development, and economic revitalization strategies to create attractive and vital city districts along the city’s primary arterials. Our projects are designed to enhance walkability and liveability in support of long term growth, transit access, and connectivity.

Gateway District Strategic Plan: Alameda

Heart of the City Plan: Redondo Beach

Park Street District Regulating Code

For decades, cities of all sizes throughout California have endured the disinvestment of their primary arterials and neighborhood corridors. Once vital to the movements of goods, services, residents and visitors, many urban corridors suffered disinvestment as commercial investors migrated to locations adjacent to the interchanges of major regional highways, leaving in their wake an amalgam of auto-oriented development patterns with little economic vitality.  The CDC approach to corridor revitalization aims to restructure corridor environments so that they once again serve as desirable locations for new investment and pedestrian activity in support of long-term economic health.

The CDC’s comprehensive approach to Corridor Revitalization:

  • Economic strategies and land use policies are custom designed to attract and enable a range of desired new investment in accordance with contemporary consumer and investor preferences.
  • Streetscape designs and capital improvement recommendations create an attractive and functional public realm designed to support new investment, increase transit access and mobility, and enhance pedestrian activity.
  • Form-based development regulations ensure that new investment contributes to an attractive built environment comprising well-crafted buildings, landscapes, and open spaces in support of the community’s vision.
