Planning the Future Shorelines of the Caribbean Rivera
An incredible discussion on a fascinating project.
Host Dan Martin takes us on a trip down to Puerto Rico with Tim Brangle, President and CEO of The Chicago Consultants Studio, a master development group expert in, among other things, urban design, tourism and entertainment facilities, and mixed-use projects. Tim is leading the planning team for the largest coastal project in the Caribbean: the Roosevelt Roads Redevelopment. A former naval base, Roosevelt Roads includes 8,000 acres of pristine waterfront land along Puerto Rico’s eastern coast within what's called the “Green Triangle.” Dan and Tim discuss this new "Caribbean Rivera," how coastal natural spaces should be used, and how the redevelopment plan has evolved.
