By tapping the rising demand for urban living, we create plans that add economic, environmental, and social value for every resident...
Stantec’s Urban Places helps clients realize the full range of benefits that flow from fully urban, walkable downtowns, neighborhoods, and suburban centers. Driven by data and grounded in the marketplace, our plans inspire people. They generate excitement. They respond to stakeholder concerns. And they’re helping dozens of communities across North America chart a path to greater livability, equity, and sustainability. The results of our plans and designs are significant and measurable. When transit-oriented development lifts real estate values, a community gains new jobs and new revenue that can underwrite more affordable housing. When roads designed as complete streets invite people to leave the car at home and walk, bike or use transit, then public health gets a boost and our carbon footprint shrinks. When imaginative design turns a brownfield into a leafy riverside park, or a seawall into an elegant esplanade, quality of life rises and environmental threats become easier to manage. Our urban design team creates places, networks and infrastructure that connect people to place, to prosperity, and to each other.
