Urban Design for Human Well-Being

“The way we develop our cities (the Suburban Experiment) is bankrupting us and endangering our neighborhoods through a nationwide housing crisis, dangerously designed streets, lack of transparency in city finances, endless highway expansion, and huge, wasteful parking lots”.

A Better Approach to Urban Planning

Our Approach

We advocate, collaborate, and lead.

Urban Landscapes partners with developers, local government officials, architects, engineers, and the broader public to create cost-effective, dynamic projects that make an impact. We lead with experience, insight, and strategic guidance throughout the process.

We fight for what we believe is the best solution and champion ideas that improve quality of life, work in harmony with the natural landscape, and are financially successful for clients and communities.

We create interconnectivity.

The ability to live, work, and play within a walkable, car-independent community creates healthier, wealthier, and happier humans.

We overcome obstacles.

We are problem solvers. We use our experience and passion for sustainable development to understand needs and anticipate issues in order to solve problems as or before they arise.

We transform conventional processes.

We create innovative and alternative solutions to traditional planning and development formulas. We think differently and adapt new processes — often resulting in unique and inspired design and planning solutions.

We encourage a collaborative process with the community and stakeholders to ensure that spaces are designed to create sustainable, profitable, and inspiring places for all.

Urban Landscape Design

Our landscape design approach blends functionality with aesthetics.
