Nick Allen

Senior Analyst

As a Senior Analyst in HR&A’s New York Office, Nick focuses on citywide planning initiatives and mixed-use development projects.


Nick is currently working with the City of Boston to develop Imagine Boston 2030—Boston’s first comprehensive plan in 50 years—which will expand opportunity by guiding the city’s growth, investment, and development over the coming decades. He has also conducted an economic and fiscal impact analysis of a major mixed-use development effort in downtown Nashville that, when complete, will create a destination that connects the urban core with emerging neighborhoods nearby. He previously conducted a market feasibility analysis for a mixed-use development in central New Jersey and updated a feasibility analysis for the Hemisfair World’s Fair site in downtown San Antonio.

Prior to joining HR&A, Nick worked for Kepler Cannon, a boutique management consulting firm in New York City where he managed the US portion of a global fund administration lift-out for a Top 10 real estate asset manager. Previously, he was an intern with CBRE’s Investment Properties Institutional Group in New York and with the Urban Land Institute in Washington, DC, where he co-wrote a report on climate risk and resilience in coastal regions.

Nick holds a Bachelor of Arts in Geography and Economics, cum laude, from Dartmouth College.
