SGA’s Ranson – Charles Town Commerce Corridor Project is awarded a Phoenix Award and People’s Choice Award at the National EPA Brownfield Conference in Atlanta, GA

by SGA

The cities of Ranson and Charles Town and SGA were recently recognized as part of consultant team for their decade-long planning effort and partnership of transforming a blighted and contaminated corridor of idled brownfields into a “Commerce Corridor” of mixed-use, sustainable downtown development that will bring together workforce housing, commercial office jobs and retail shopping, integrated with an enhanced park and recreational system and connected by community facilities, complete streets and green infrastructure.

SGA Principals Timothy Stromberg and Sean Garrigan have been leading brownfields redevelopment planning and design on behalf of the two cities since 2002. Their planning work has led to nearly $90 Million in new private and public sector investment in the two cities and the creation of nearly 1000 jobs in the downtown heart of the two communities, including creating redevelopment framework for model green projects developed by the American Public University System, including two state-of-the-art academic facilities, which are Gold Level LEED Certified and located on former contaminated sites. Currently the firm, in conjunction with its affiliate architectural firm Landmarks SGA, LLC, is leading the final design of a model downtown mixed-use retail and multi-family complex on the former Powhatan Brass Foundry.
