Project Center

San Juan, Puerto Rico


This project was prepared to help residents of San Juan's central business district understand how effectively government agencies have planned to accommodate changes that will result from the dramatic revitalization of the sector. Analysis was accomplished by characterizing the status of infrastructural systems, projecting how revitalization projects will impact these systems, and analyzing strategic planning in place. The study concludes the deteriorated status of several infrastructural systems will be an obstacle to supporting economic development and quality of life improvements.
