Small to mid-size downtown areas can suffer from similar types of difficulties. Unfortunately, they may be run-down with aging infrastructure, poorly designed, and lack tourism. These issues pose a considerable challenge to retailers in the area. Consequently, this problem leaves community members overburdened and less willing to participate in the community events that bring vitality to a municipality. Schleidt Works has partnered with municipalities across New England, including the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development and the Meriden Economic Development Corp., to provide downtown revitalization consultant services. These services offer tremendous economic benefits for communities.
Downtown Redevelopment Services
Building Transformation Strategies Consulting
Many districts that are struggling do not have the funds to invest in new construction. However, your municipality can reuse what it already has. Fortunately, Connecticut is currently offering a new incentive to build or renovate commercial facilities to meet or exceed the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design (LEED) Gold Standard. We provide consultation regarding redeveloping your existing buildings.
Community Events & Attractions Consulting
Vibrancy is the key to a thriving downtown area. Events, decorations, and ornamental lighting increase foot traffic in a downtown area and support the municipal economy. Additionally, community members and individuals from surrounding areas will frequently visit downtown if it holds festivals, parades, and other special occasions. We have the tips and tricks necessary to get your downtown booming.
Shared Workspace Consulting
Shared Workspaces increase social connections, foster productivity, and provide flexibility to workers in your community. Moreover, shared workspaces attract digital nomads living in surrounding areas. Undoubtedly, these digital nomads support the local economy because they buy lunch, check out retail shops, and use local gyms. Here at Schleidt Works, we have done extensive research regarding co-working spaces. As a result, we can provide your municipality with guidance every step of the way.
