STUART A. GEWIRTZMAN, AICP
Mr. Gewirtzman, with over 24 years of experience, leads PHA’s transportation planning efforts. His work has encompassed demand forecasting, capacity analysis, and planning for the highway mode and a wide range of transit modes, including heavy rail, light rail, buses and ferries.
Mr. Gewirtzman recently completed the transportation analyses for the NYPD’s World Trade Center Campus Security Plan, as well as the transit and pedestrian analyses for the NYC Department of City Planning’s (NYCDCP) East Midtown Rezoning project encompassing a 73-block area surrounding Grand Central Terminal. He was also responsible for the transit and pedestrian analyses for the Atlantic Yards Arena and Redevelopment project, a major residential and commercial development in Downtown Brooklyn that includes the 17,700-seat Barclays Center Arena, and he is serving a similar role for the supplemental EIS for the project’s Phase II development.
Mr. Gewirtzman was responsible for evaluating landside transit, pedestrian and vehicular access for three potential ferry landing locations at Coney Island as part of the Coney Island Ferry Feasibility Study prepared on behalf of the NYC Economic Development Corporation. This effort also included preparing demand forecasts for a potential ferry service between Coney Island and Manhattan.
Mr. Gewirtzman also served as project manager for the preparation of a Design Report/EIS for NYCDOT’s Willis Avenue Bridge Reconstruction project, which evaluated the replacement of this major Harlem River structure.
Mr. Gewirtzman served as the on-call transportation consultant to the Alliance for Downtown New York, and performed similar services for the Downtown Transportation Users Group which was convened by 19 major Downtown firms and organizations to identify the transportation needs of the Downtown corporate community. He also developed the route and operating parameters for the Alliance’s Downtown Connection circulator bus service, and later aided the Alliance in assessing potential options for route expansion.
Previous transportation planning projects have included the Whitehall Ferry Terminal in Lower Manhattan, and the pedestrian circulation assessment for the St. George Intermodal Ferry Terminal Master Plan for NYCDOT.
