FREEPORT NORTH MAIN STREET CORRIDOR AND VILLAGE CENTER DEVELOPMENT PLANFreeport, New York


Freeport’s North Main Street corridor and station area are currently burdened with numerous and significant demographic, economic, under-leased, vacancy, and public safety perception problems yet are also prime examples of the promise that village centers hold for revitalizing valuable suburban locales. The team developed a comprehensive Master Plan that included proposals for building preservation and restoration, new building uses, pedestrian safety and experience improvements, streetscape designs, public space refurbishment and additions, traffic calming, transit improvements, detailed parking strategies, infill opportunities, economic revitalization strategies, and phasing.

POOLE DESIGN developed a range of public spaces: a new community garden/park, a market beneath the train station platform, and a revitalized public green adjacent to the train station.
