HR&A is Proud to Announce Cary Hirschstein as a New Partner



“Cary embodies HR&A’s values. He has a special ability to navigate complex urban development projects making him such a cherished asset for our clients and our entire community for over 10 years.”
– John Alschuler, Chairman, HR&A Advisors


HR&A is pleased to announce the promotion of Cary Hirschstein to Partner in our New York office. Since joining HR&A in 2004, Cary has specialized in the management of large-scale urban development, real estate advisory services for nonprofit institutions, and the structuring of effective policies and programs supporting environmental sustainability and resiliency.


Currently Cary represents David Beckham and his partners in their efforts to secure a stadium location for a new Major League Soccer franchise in Miami. In 2013, he directed Major League Soccer’s initial efforts to develop a new 25,000-seat stadium in New York City. In addition, Cary advises clients on economics and policies related to sustainability and resiliency. He served as an advisor to New York City’s Office of Long-Term Planning and Sustainability and the Urban Green Council, contributed to PlaNYC 2030, and managed the design and implementation of large-scale residential and commercial energy efficiency initiatives for the New York State Energy Research & Development Authority. Most recently, as part of the New York Rising Community Reconstruction Program, Cary led the development of a community-based plan for improving the resiliency of Lower Manhattan through the investment of $25 million in CDBG-DR funding, allocated in response to Superstorm Sandy.


Within our firm, Cary plays a leading role in the training of our analytic staff and in mounting business development strategies. With this strong addition to HR&A’s partnership in New York, we look forward to continuing to support the economic development and public-private partnership goals of our clients.
