Wake BRT New Bern Corridor TOD Planning

New Bern Avenue, Raleigh, NC, USA

Transit

Neighboring Concepts is currently engaged in the station design for the Wake BRT New Bern Avenue transit corridor. In support of that project as part of the station area planning component led by the City of Raleigh, Neighboring Concepts contributed to the Stantec consultant team’s comprehensive corridor opportunities and constraints analysis. To tell the “Story of New Bern Avenue”, this included delineating the land use character areas developed in distinct development patterns representing every era of Raleigh’s history. Neighboring Concepts identified historic landmarks, neighborhood histories, and the cultural and “green” assets to protect and nurture in each corridor community. During the week-long public workshops for each section of the corridor, Neighboring Concepts contributed to an enhanced public space strategy to associate public life and new activities with historic landmarks like the St. Agnes Hospital at St. Augustine’s University. Neighboring Concepts also proposed distinctive strategies to stitch together the historic Longview Gardens suburb with new multi-modal streets and trails connecting the stations to the Crabtree Creek Trail. They also contributed to Stantec’s phasing strategy for the expansive redevelopment opportunities outside of the 440-loop.
