Portsmouth Downtown Vision
Strategic Plan and Long-Term Vision | Portsmouth, New Hampshire
In collaboration with architects Touloukian Touloukian, Halvorson Design led and facilitated an urban design dialog with a mayoral-appointed committee charged with preparing a Strategic Plan and Long-Term Vision for the city-owned Bridge and Worth parking lots and the pedestrian-oriented Vaughan Mall, located in the heart of downtown Portsmouth.
The resulting plan extends Portsmouth’s urban fabric to new development areas and identifies three complementary, yet different, flexible multi-use open spaces. Strategically placed building and support structures offer year-round activity and vibrancy to these new open spaces.
