Lindsey Harris

Senior Analyst

Lindsey’s depth of knowledge on the current state of retail, coupled with her passion for urban marketplaces and experience with adaptive reuse, allows her to provide strong recommendations to both public and private clients.

 
While at HR&A, Lindsey has advised the leasing and development team of the Transbay Transit Center on the merchandising plan and vision for the 100,000 square feet of retail space planned for the downtown San Francisco transit hub. More locally, Lindsey has quantified demand for small office space for a New Jersey development and has conducted financial analysis to determine the viability of a developer’s plans for a parcel of property owned by New Jersey Transit.

Prior to joining HR&A, Lindsey worked as the Project Director for Turnstyle Underground Market, a commercial development on the concourse level of the Columbus Circle subway station. Apart from overseeing the leasing and construction of the 32 food and retail shops, Lindsey served as the liaison to the Transit Authority for this public-private partnership and provided financial analysis to the project’s equity partners and lenders.  With the same developer, Lindsey worked as Project Manager for a condominium concept in Hell’s Kitchen, which involved constructing new floors over an existing United States Postal Service building. Earlier in her career, Lindsey worked for an economic development initiative called New Amsterdam Market, which focused on reclaiming the Old Market “Tin” Building and the New Market, formerly the site of the Fulton Fish Market, to create a public place for commerce.

Lindsey holds a bachelor’s degree in Urban Studies and Economics from Barnard College, Columbia University. As an undergraduate student, Lindsey performed a comparative study of urban greenmarkets across the capital cities of India, Senegal, and Argentina to tie into her senior thesis.
