Revitalize | High Performance Streets

Where art meets psychology, meets math,

meets science.

When you walk down a street and you feel like it was made just for you.

High Performance Streets are Streets That Do More .  We optimize this important public space by studying your community's culture, land-use, traffic patterns, ecology and more.  And then we work with you to develop a plan and implementation strategy that celebrates these unique qualities.  We're with you from the first spark of an idea to the ribbon cutting ceremony.

Streets That Do More .

Designing places that people enjoy is a complex proposition. Oftentimes there are a number of different goals and objectives, stakeholders and uses. For this reason, we utilize an Integrated Design Process (IDP) as the foundation of our design approach. This process engages all stakeholders and professionals early and often in the design process and increases the likelihood of successful implementation while ensuring the development of “High Performance” Streets and Spaces that seamlessly integrate:


Art & Culture

Health & the Environment

Economic Vitality

Design Quality

Our Three-Step High Performance Streets Process

 We don't like plans or reports that sit on the shelf.  Our three-step process breaks down complex, multi-stakeholder corridor revitalization projects into a clear roadmap towards tangible results.  We'll be with you from the first visioning meeting until the last tree is planted and the sidewalk is swept.
