Urban Design

Shaping our communities through design. Great places don’t just happen—they are born of thoughtful vision and intelligent design...

Urban design represents a unique way of looking at the towns and cities where we work: In the midst of economic and social change, we identify opportunities to improve livability, expand economic opportunity and equity, and promote environmental responsibility. We help our clients clarify values and craft visions both achievable and compelling. Our plans and designs advance community visions beautifully—whether for a Main Street, a neighborhood, or an entire downtown—but they also pay off in other ways. When Transit Oriented Developments lift real estate values, a community gains jobs and new revenues that can underwrite more affordable housing. When Complete Streets invite people to leave their 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 riverbank park, or a seawall into an elegant esplanade, quality of life rises and environmental threats recede. Our urban design team creates spaces, networks and infrastructure that connect people to each other and equip communities to thrive socially, economically and environmentally.
