Train Terraces Featured in Long Island Index 2015 Report

The Long Island Index 2015 Report by HR&A Advisors presents the economic implications of Long Island-wide initiatives that could address some of the region’s most intractable issues. In the report, HR&A cites LTL's design, Train Terraces, as a new model for dense, mixed-use development in Long Island downtowns. Train Terraces was originally generated as part of the Build a Better Burb: ParkingPLUS design challenge, and is presented here as a prototype for development across Long Island. The design proposes programmatic densification around the Long Island Rail Road, taking the form of an intermodal transit hub integrated with public, commercial, technological, and residential spaces.
