3x3 forged public private partnerships for citizen generated visioning, long term growth strategies, and
inclusive development in Jersey City’s West Side. We developed a comprehensive neighborhood development plan using spatial analysis and participatory design methods to reprogram underutilized public space and build community resilience in a rapidly developing area of Jersey City.
Redstone Townhomes Neighborhood Association (RTNA) wanted to harness recent area investments to revive and transition the neighborhood into an education and cultural destination within Jersey City. Their goals were to:
• Draw new investments through streetscape improvements and arts-based placemaking to drive foot
traffic and create an inviting atmosphere for residents and visitors.
• Communicate a cohesive vision and identity strategy for long-term neighborhood and campus growth.
• Advance neighborhood stability through quality of life interventions: traffic calming, urban connectivity,
public safety, and enhanced open space.
