Master Planning & Urban Design
We see each Building as a "Building in Context". We believe Buildings have a distinct hierarchy and if placed together are compatible in size, architectural language and siting. They are the ultimate embodiment of the Vision and Character of the Development and are an integral part of the land development process.
"We take great care in the design for each building and typically design and manage the architectural guidelines for each project. In addition to our selective design of certain buildings within each development, we work with a variety of architects and production firms to ensure a cohesive outcome.
The following are sample buildings designed by New Urban Design Group ranging from Single Family to Mixed Use and Multi Family:
Lake Front Elevation
Street View Initial Concept Sketch
Rocky View Canada
Street Elevation Study
Pieve Di Cento, Italy
St Joes Park, Canada
Land Development Management
More than just the name implies, New Urban Design Group develops and manages various land development projects ranging from small Infill sites upwards to large scale Master Planned Developments, Commercial Real Estate, Resort and Mixed Use Development Projects.
We act as both the Design Visionary and Master Developer throughout the entire development process from start to finish. As the "Keepers of the Plan" we are able to ensure the original vision is never compromised throughout the design, approval, marketing and land development phases.
The key Phases throughout the entire Land Development Process are:
Stage 1: Pre-Development
Stage 2: Master Planning & Urban Design
Stage 3: Project Feasibility
Stage 4: Approval Facilitation
Stage 5: Construction & Building
Stage 6: Marketing & Sales
Marketing and Sales is one of the most important part of the development process as it plays a key role in gathering initial Investors, conveying the vision, and ultimately driving sales toward the end user. Our comprehensive marketing approach includes working with strategic marketing partner agencies and sales people.
As the Design Visionary and Master Developer we compile the marketing vision with strategic marketing agencies and educate sales people through the entire development process from start to finish. As the "Keepers of the Plan" we make every effort to ensure the original vision is never compromised throughout the marketing and sales process.
We believe pictures are worth 10,000 words and as such place a great deal of emphasis on the visual representation of the project throughout the marketing process.
