Union Square Neighborhood Plan | SOMERVILLE, MASSACHUSETTS Union Square is poised to see significant growth, partifulcuarly around new transit stations for an extended MBTA line. The City of Somerville underwent an extensive community outreach and planning process to frame the future growth of Union Square from the design of the public realm to development planning for infill sites and a large industrial district. I served as the design/ planning director and project manager. (Completed at Utile) Gilman Square

Boston Marine Industrial Park | BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS The purpose of this master plan is to evaluate the position of the BMIP within the greater context of the Port of Boston and to determine the relevancy of the industrial, and in particularly the marine industrial economy, within the BMIP. The study focused on how future development and infrastructure can help to support ongoing industrial activity.

industrial space and traditional industrial space can suit a growing demand for commercial uses and ensure the preservation of an industrial economy in the city. I served as the planning director and project manager. (Completed at Utile)

Brush Park Form Based Code and Plan | DETROIT, MICHIGAN The Detroit Planning and Development Department is in the process of a neighborhood plan and form-based zoning code for Brush Park, a historically significant neighborhood north of Downtown.  he plan focuses on unique building and T lot typologies for the neighborhood to show future development scenarios and public spaces at a conceptual level. A form-based zoning code for the neighborhood will be

the final outcome, determining the process for future development approvals, as well as setting the standards for the future form of the neighborhood. The aim is to establish rules for building types, heights, setbacks, massing, and street types, among other regulatory controls. I served as the project manager and planning director.

Malden River Greenway | BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS For generations the Malden River was an industrial waterway walled-off to public use. The Malden River Greenway Plan lays out a vision that will transform the river, creating a world-class park system running through the cities of Everett, Malden, and Medford. The Malden River Greenway intends to provide connected and accessible paths for residents and visitors along the Malden River. The Malden River Greenway will become integral to an open space network that provides a key link in a regional greenway system. I served as the project manager and planning director.

Malaysia Vision Valley | KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA The federal government’s 11th Malaysia Plan calls for significant growth and development south of Kuala Lumpur. The study focused on a planning framework for 28,000 acres of land recommending areas of future density,, land use, programming internal transit and open space. This included the alignment and extension of major pieces of infrastructure including regional highways, commuter rail and a new high-speed rail line connecting Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. In addition a significant open space network is planned to connect remote mountain reserves, riparian corridors and linear open space to the Straits of Malacca. I served as Utile’s project manager and lead designer. (Completed at Utile)

Density Mapping - A “heat map” based on assigned

FAR focused density around transit stations and urban cores with a gradual recession of development intensity outboard of those areas.

Revere Beach Creative District | REVERE, MA Revere Beach is the first public beach in the United States and for decades it served as a regional recreational waterfront destination. While the beach is still heavily used and directly adjacent to an MBTA station, much of the beachfront property remains vacant

or underutilized. This plan recommended ways in which the City might plan for new development, while at the same time preserve the local character and identity of Revere Beach Creative District Revere Beach through adaptive reuse and programming.

Downtown North/West |

HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT

Hartford bears the scars of shortsighted planning during the era of urban renewal. This planning assignment aimed to establish productive uses for land that has stood vacant or underutilized north of downtown, and looked for discrete infill opportunities throughout the study area. The plan took a pragmatic approach that created a menu of options for development opportunities, understanding that market pressure may prioritize certain parcels and development types. I served as the project manager and lead urban designer. (Completed at Utile)

Nantasket Beach Revitalization Plan |

HULL, MASSACHUSETTS

The revitalization plan reimagined surface parking lots at the beachfront as a neighborhood center, breaking down the imposing roadways into pedestrian scaled blocks and streets. Sustainable design elements ensured the development strategy is a model for storm resiliency. I served as the project manager and lead urban designer. (Completed at Utile)

Master Plan - Surface parking lots are transformed into a new town center with a logical

street grid, development sites, and a new a open space system.

Village Master Plan | THUWAL, SAUDI ARABIA A small village south of the new King Abdullah University of Science and Technology has the potential to transform into a regional destination by capitalizing on its proximity to the new university and the city of Jeddah to the south. The plan calls for low to medium density residential development, as well as a commercial core, anchored by a regional fish market. (Completed at HOK)

RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA

A 1350 hectare (3300 acres) site located 15 minutes north of Riyadh. This alternative turns the speculative development that has blanketed Riyadh back to a traditional Islamic urban form. The current development pattern has developed a strict grid system that, while efficient for transportation and infrastructure expansion, ignores the climatic and environmental conditions of Saudi Arabia. The master plan is designed to accommodate approximately 200,000 people. (Completed at HOK)
