Cities are complex, dynamic places, shaped by many forces. To deal with this, we take a cross-disciplinary approach that considers all the dimensions of new and redevelopment, from serving people and sustaining the environment to spur healthy economic growth and building the brand that cities need to be attractive destinations for business and living. Our global portfolio is diverse in scale and project type.
Cultivating a culture of design Breakthrough ideas emerge from understanding the needs of the people and communities we serve. Delivering design that is informed, purposeful, innovative and compelling means we encourage our people — the industry’s top talent — to explore new solutions to age-old problems. We reward collaboration and intellectual curiosity — striving to leverage design’s ability to elevate the everyday.
Designed for living and for business, hospitality serves two masters—the clientele and the investors. The art and science of our design approach is to balance their needs in ways that honor the laws of attraction at every price point—building brand loyalty, buzz, and happiness. We know this territory, including the new players and emerging markets. We know hotels, resorts, and residences in every combination.
Placemaking is at the heart of our practice. In a world defined by increasing urbanization and globalization, we respond by grounding our projects in the specifics of the local community. The result is authentic settings that relate to their surroundings and engender feelings of home. Our approach is broad and multidisciplinary, encompassing master planning, mixed-use developments with multifamily components, hospitality, and housing for seniors and students. We bring a wealth of market experience to our residential work, delivering smarter and richer experiences that belong to their communities.
Successful retail destinations achieve their buzz and drawing power on multiple levels. Like mixed use, they’re real, event-filled places that accentuate the communal. Like pure retail, they make room for the distinctive experiences that stores, restaurants, cafés, and pop-ups need to create and transform to attract the right people then keep them coming back. Delivering that synergy and energy is what we do.
