"As world population and development continues to increase, most cities turn toward simple and easy development on green sites to draw revenue to their economy. These types of developments bring a lack of culture, individualism, affordable living, and original ideas. Hartford, CT is one of the struggling cities in the NorthEast in need of a unique approach to this problem. Through the implementation of a mixed-use urban hybrid catalyst along the Northern Hartford highway divide, an urban revitalization unique to this place will promote development in downtown Hartford. Beginning with the development of several abandoned structures and empty lots, Hartford can experience growth without displacement, attract new visitors, maximize the functioning hours, improve the economy and standard of living."
