If you live in a city of any size, you may occasionally drive by areas that are going downhill. In fact, some of them may have already reached the bottom of the slope. When commercial urban design architects see these rather depressing scenes, they do not fixate on what is (or isn’t) there in the present. Of course they take it all in, but they immediately start to envision the possibilities. Where some people see neglect and decay, they perceive a seething sea of unrealized potential.
This dynamic is very interesting, and if you have lived in a particular city for a number of years, you understand the history of your town. You may remember when a certain area that is now mostly empty was full of vibrant activity, with merchants, restaurants, and movie theaters thriving. In another area there may be a long-abandoned factory that once employed hundreds of people, workers that bought homes and raised children while they actively lived the American Dream.
These memories evoke emotions, and commercial urban design architects that work with partners within a given community understand what these projects mean on that heartfelt level. Bringing something that was once very special back to life is an enriching endeavor, and this is what drives many urban design architects. Yes, profitability is important if you want to be able to complete projects on an ongoing basis, but there is this other type of intangible motivation as well.
The commercial urban design architects here at ReTown have had the opportunity to undertake many projects like these over the years, and it has indeed been gratifying. We have the ability to bring together all of the moving parts as it were, and it is challenging to coordinate all aspects of these rather large scale projects. However, due to our experience and the relationships that we have built with our partners, we deliver results on a consistent basis.
