The most recent issue of Urban Land features Cleveland's Euclid Avenue HealthLine BRT, for which Sasaki provided planning and landscape architecture. The article examines the project in terms of the development it has helped to stimulate in the area, how it has helped to catalyze an economic development strategy for the city, and the role the HealthLine has played in changing people's minds about the link between transportation and jobs in Cleveland.
Sasaki principal Jason Hellendrung, who wrote the article and was project manager of the project, shares, "We are really excited about the results of the HealthLine project. Our design strategy was to 'think rail while using bus,' and the results follow suit: the HealthLine has achieved what many thought could only be done by rail. It demonstrates the potential for BRT—when coupled with thoughtful planning and design—to have a lasting, positive impact on the surrounding community."
