Tom Young

Market Leader—Urban Places

Photo of Tom

Tom’s move from Canada to New Zealand illuminated how the transit-oriented development trends of North America can really get New Zealand’s cities moving. With his experience providing comprehensive plans for walkable, mixed-use neighbourhoods in Canada, Tom now helps his New Zealand clients chart a path towards more vibrant and resilient communities.

Planning is a ‘long game’ that has the potential to dramatically shape how communities grow. One of Tom’s projects involved regenerating a former municipal airport in Edmonton into a mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly, low-carbon neighbourhood for 30,000 people, all served by light rail transit. Since moving to New Zealand, he has contributed to diverse projects such as Milford Sound Piopiotahi Masterplan and Tauranga’s City Centre Strategy Refresh, bringing an international perspective to local planning and design processes.

To relax Tom likes travelling to explore this corner of the world. He’s a dedicated street photographer, so you’ll often find him with a camera in hand.
