Urban Design is a coordinated effort to make your city or town more vibrant. We begin each Urban Design project with these provocative questions: “How can we apply what’s already here to make this urban space work better for people today? How can we plan for needed adaptability to fit the area’s future character and demographics?”
In each city, town and project we see a partially painted canvas waiting for our multi-talented team to revitalize it to new life.
Communities that welcome participation and support a transparent and inclusive decision-making process are the most successful… and the most fun!
Environmental stewardship can be responsible, beautiful, and economically successful.
Walkable, mixed-use, inclusive, and safe communities are places that thrive.
People are one-of-a-kind and their lives are anything but one-dimensional. Does your planned environment nurture every facet? We seek to create homes and community spaces that are ahead of the industry, that anticipate residents’ daily needs up front. JD+A offers a different kind of living environment that suits individual residents perfectly.
Our communities are practical and beautiful, retain their relevance over time, and inspire joyful expression every day.
Many decisions go into an urban design plan and multiple viewpoints must be heard and incorporated. Our process requires we be both vision-shapers and a consensus builders with city officials, stakeholders, community leaders, and project team members.
