Projects

  • Fruitville, Florida: A coordinated strategy for ecologically responsible development of 346 acres in Sarasota County, the Fruitville Plan lays the armature for the creation of walkable Neighborhoods and Districts while preserving existing wetlands.

  • Albuquerque, New Mexico: East Downtown is in the process of revitalizing its Central Avenue and Broadway Corridors with light rail and a comprehensive redevelopment strategy.

  • Azusa, California: The Azusa General Plan and Development Code transforms the City of Azusa from a typical postwar suburb of production house tracts and commercial strips into a town of distinct, compact Neighborhoods that surround a vibrant downtown.

  • Tucson, Arizona: A plan for enhancing a five-mile stretch of the Stone Avenue Corridor identifies a pivotal intersection as an urban gateway to surrounding areas and outlines a typological infill strategy to develop underused sites.

Thoughts

  • In the work of the New Urbanism, we start with the premise that buildings and the space between (streets and squares) must be a balanced ensemble of pavement, streetwalls, green and building walls.

  • Concentrations of civic, institutional, and commercial activity should be embedded in neighborhoods and districts, not isolated in remote, single-use complexes.
