New Towns + Urban Renewal / Waterfront Development

New Towns

An integrated approach is key in designing New Towns. Design by nature (e.g. Climate proof and creating green and healthy urban structures), and well-zoned space for the economic drivers in synergy for decades to come. Motives to create new towns often come from problems in these areas, such as congestion, air pollution, water shortage or flooding, or urban sprawl.

– economic driver, congestion in existing cities, water shortage, safer areas wrt e.g. climate aspects
– design by nature, for good future atmosphere, healthy cities, and saving costs for expensive infrastructure
– integrated approach: climate adaptation
– place making: orientation / creating vibrant cores
– good accessibility: sustainable transport systems and sound urban planning

Urban Renewal

High-potential areas are transformed into vibrant and modern areas, which can add high quality to the city. Accessibility improvements will be made, and attractive functions can help upgrade large areas. Private partnerships help making the project financially feasible.
Downside is that in urban renewal areas, the problems are often worst for the poorest. Where will they live after this upgrade, often too high-priced for them.

Our world-wide experienced designers and consultants offer this integrated approach for your project.

– business case: what functions can cover the costs? How can private parties participate in this?
– social issues: after the renewal: where did the poorest people go to? Stakeholder participation
– Upgrade of accessibility
– Energy transition
