Greg Tung Joins Sargent Town Planning

We are very pleased to announce that Gregory Tung is joining Sargent Town Planning as an Associate Principal and core member of our senior management team.  Greg is an urban designer with over 35 years’ experience working with cities throughout California and the West to craft successful community-based revitalization strategies, and to implement high-quality, human-scale placemaking at all scales.  He will work closely with our principals and senior associates to guide and direct the firm’s work, contributing his wide experience to our constant innovation in design and documentation techniques and processes, coordinating the work of our in-house and consultant teams, and managing selected projects.  Greg and our senior principal David Sargent will lead our recently re-established Bay Area/Sacramento Area branch operation to better serve our northern California clients. 

As a principal with San Francisco-based Freedman Tung & Bottomley – later Freedman Tung & Sasaki – since 1986 Greg’s work has spanned master plans and specific plans for downtowns, arterial corridors, infill neighborhoods, and workplace and transit-oriented districts.  In this work Greg has designed many distinctive, human-scale streets and other public spaces, accented by gateways, landmarks, landscape, and furnishings.  He has prepared development standards and design guidelines to predictably implement the community’s vision, and has provided ongoing infrastructure implementation support, and design review and training services for development project review.

Greg’s work and collaborations have significantly contributed to successful downtown and corridor revitalization and public realm designs in Mountain View, Redwood City, Oakland, Livermore, Tracy, Lodi, Shafter, Ventura, San Fernando, San Fernando, and Cathedral City in California, and in Bothell, Washington, Phoenix, Arizona, and Ames, Iowa. He has served as a Peer Reviewer for the General Services Administration Design Excellence Program and a resource member for four sessions of the Mayors’ Institute on City Design.  He has been a speaker at the Congress for the New Urbanism, American Planning Association, and U.C. Berkeley College of Environmental Design.
