Holden Arboretum Master Plan

The Holden Arboretum, located near Kirtland in northern Ohio, encompasses over 3.400 acres and a wide variety of habitats, collections, research programs and public garden facilities. Our portion of the plan involved analyzing current Arboretum membership and attendance, market conditions and the experience of selected comparable gardens and arboretums, then helping to develop plan alternatives and priority assessments. A business plan provided attendance and revenue projections, forecasts of operating costs, and a proforma budget that corresponds to master planning scope and phasing. We also worked closely with the design team to develop sustainable plan alternatives, and provided a preliminary electric vehicle transportation system design.
