Public-Private Partnerships in Architecture and Design

As we enter a new year, we find ourselves looking back on some of the more unique opportunities we have been a part of and the impact they have had on the city. PKSB has a long history of serving both public and private sector clients. More and more, we have seen in our work and in developments throughout New York, that public-private partnerships are becoming increasingly viable paths toward achieving much-needed improvements for the public good. These joint efforts have resulted in the construction public educational facilities, preservation of historic buildings on public land, public housing development, health care, and transportation and infrastructure improvements.

Since 1994, PKSB has been involved with a number of these successful collaborations. We had fun looking back on a few projects and hope you do too!
