Jon Meyers

Jon Meyers has deep experience advising public and private sector clients on the financing and implementation of complex real estate projects. With a dedicated focus on economic impact measurement and analysis, he is able to develop sound and effective strategies for deploying public-private partnerships. Jon is also a leader in the firm’s work on energy efficiency and efforts to address equitable energy retrofit incentives.

In 2016, Jon returned to HR&A after serving as the Chief Operating Officer of the Trust for Governors Island, where he was responsible for capital projects, operations, and finance for a complex redevelopment project in New York Harbor.

During his initial tenure at HR&A, Jon was instrumental in creating an economic rationale for the re-use of the High Line in New York City. He led HR&A’s efforts to estimate the impact of saving the High Line as a public open space as an alternative to demolishing the historic structure. Jon also served as the project manager for HR&A’s work creating economic development strategies for downtown Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio.

Following September 11, 2001, Jon managed the firm’s work to support recovery efforts with the Alliance for Lower Manhattan. He surveyed residents and evaluated potential market demand for new retail uses, and worked with the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation to estimate the economic impact associated with a variety of proposed transportation and infrastructure investments.

Jon holds a Master’s in Business Administration from Columbia University and a Bachelor of Arts in Geography from Dartmouth College.
