Local Markets

 

Local Markets

  • Charleston, W.Va.

    Charleston has benefited from nonprofit and government development projects, but it could use an infusion from the private sector.

     
  • Wilmington, Del.

    Home to many financial companies, Wilmington has been hit particularly hard by the recession. But local architects aren't completely without hope.

     
  • Puerto Rico

    Commercial development in Puerto Rico has stalled for now, but the Caribbean island is repositioning itself as a hub for healthcare-related R&D.

     
  • Detroit

    Between an engaged younger citizenry and the return of beloved Mayor Dave Bing, there's a renewed sense of purpose all around Detroit.

     
  • Manchester, N.H.

    Fewer projects are under way in Manchester these days, but the city's focus on ensuring the economic viability of what gets built means fewer are in financial trouble.

     
  • Jackson, Miss.

    Mississippi's only true urban center, Jackson has $1.5 billion in private projects and $400 million in public developments planned or under construction.

     
  • Washington, D.C.

    Although the nation’s capital bought into the “Yes, we can!” mentality, economic pressures have largely stifled private development in Washington, D.C.

     
  • Portland, Ore.

    Green architecture is practically the industry standard in Portland, where a mandate on sustainability pairs nicely with a strong can-do culture.

     
  • Lexington, Ky.

    Although it has struggled with the issue of how to grow without destroying its past, Lexington now has a plan that blends the old with the new.

     
  • Stamford, Conn.

    The strength of Stamford's commercial sector is driving a demand for workforce housing, which is helping keep a downtown construction boom moving along.
