Redevelopment and urban planning are large components of 21st century environmentalism; urban sprawl is not. Our projects include soil and groundwater remediation, the redesign of obsolescent buildings, abundant use of windows for reduced electricity, long-lasting recyclable materials, drought tolerant landscaping, rainwater catchment systems, bioswales, outdoor garden areas, rooftop decks, shade trees, green-rated buildings, solar panels, electric car charging stations, and are bike friendly. These amenities also draw successful business owners and families – who become vested members of the community. This, in turn, creates higher demand for residential and commercial real estate, enlarges the customer base for local business growth and maximizes value to the community.
Another priority is planning projects in close proximity to transportation, jobs, entertainment, and restaurants. Our comprehensive approach to land planning increases long-term municipal revenues through a significant increase in the property, sales and business tax base, which ultimately generates greater funds for affordable housing, community-based programs, and maintenance of parks, schools, water, sewer, and infrastructure.
