Employment Districts

The workforce of the 21st century is seeking work places that integrate jobs into active urban lifestyles.  The business “parks” of the 20th century cut jobs off from home and shopping and required single purpose commutes to amenity-poor places characterized by parking lots rather than parks.  We work with communities to design 21st century employment districts that integrate offices and research and development with commercial amenities in walkable, mixed-use and transit-oriented places, usually within a walk or bike commute of nearby neighborhoods.  Our employment district plans include new districts linked with new neighborhoods along transit corridors, and business park retrofits that break down the superblocks into walkable urban patterns and intensify development with the introduction of transit service, shared parking, commercial support services and housing.
