Nadine Fogarty leads a wide range of projects, providing expertise in market analysis, development feasibility, and public sector financing strategies with a focus on urban infill and transit-oriented development (TOD). She specializes in evaluating the implications of planning policies and public investments on development potential and developing “value capture” strategies to fund transit and other capital improvements.
Nadine has worked extensively to plan for and implement TOD across the US, including projects in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, the Twin Cities, Houston, Detroit, Pittsburgh, and Honolulu. Recent projects include estimating the potential economic benefits of proposed streetcar projects in Sacramento and Oakland, an exploration of the potential for value capture strategies to help pay for the proposed BART extension to San Jose and Santa Clara, and an infrastructure financing study for the Grand Boulevard Initiative on the San Francisco Peninsula.
She holds a Master in City Planning and a Master of Science in Real Estate Development from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She received her B.A. in Geography from the University of California at Berkeley. She serves as faculty for the Rose Center for Public Leadership in Land Use, a joint program of the National League of Cities and the Urban Land Institute.
