Re-Envisioning an Urban Center

Envision Brewster Master Plan

Brewster, New York

Mixed Use

< Back

The Village of Brewster, originally a thriving community, gradually declined in recent years. As industry moved elsewhere, property values plummeted and zoning enforcement softened, eroding the urban quality and building stock. Brewster has gradually re-built a culture of involvement, investment, and positive change toward a transit-oriented revitalization. The Board of Trustees selected a Developer/Design Team of Record, formalized an expansive blight study, and reinvented the zoning code to reinforce the Main Street District design vision generated by Tecton.


“Envision Brewster”, a name aptly expressing the Village’s renewed passion, will start with a very impactful first phase including dense rental units, an athletic center, offices, and retail all wrapping a new Village Square.
