River Street Planning & Development


River Street has raised in excess of $135 million dollars over the past ten years in support of community development initiatives valued at over one billion dollars. Our experience includes grant development and private placement of projects with banks and venture capitalists. We are familiar with a variety of creative finance tools including tax increment financing, special assessment districts and municipal bonding.

Recent assignments have included identification and procurement of financing for commercial projects, infrastructure, industrial facilities and business parks, new residential communities, urban waterfront projects, public facilities, adaptive reuse and preservation of historic structures and brownfield sites. Our work on the South Troy Waterfront Plan resulted in a twenty year redevelopment strategy that uses strategic partnerships to finance improvements valued at $500 million.
