Urban Design

Responding to the demands of today’s complex urban infrastructure and community development needs, Freese and Nichols delivers state-of-the-art solutions for projects large and small. Our subject matter experts are well-versed in the application of sustainable urbanism principles, including context sensitive design, walkability, smart growth, resiliency, and low-impact development. We apply these to Complete Streets, mixed-use developments, urban parks, and traditional neighborhoods.
