Urban Design

Synthesizing insight from land use planning, architecture, landscaping, engineering and city planning, to create and shape cities and towns.

Creating Unique Places and Remarkable Communities

Creating Unique Places and Remarkable Communities

Urban design is the art of creating and shaping cities and towns. It blends elements of land use planning, architecture, landscaping, engineering and city planning together to connect people and places, movement and urban form, nature, and the built fabric into an integrated experience that is both functional and attractive. We believe urban design to be an essential part of creating unique place identities, enhancing quality of life and building distinct and resilient communities.

NPG Planning Solutions’ Urban Design division is backed by decades of experience across Southern Ontario and a commitment to creating dynamic and remarkable cityscapes. Our team draws inspiration from their global and diverse professional and personal experience, including award winning academic achievements and credentials.

As an integral part of community building and place making, urban design’s best practices are incorporated in every design and planning solution NPG provides through a collaborative process across all NPG activities. This allows us to provide holistic solutions to even the most complex and multifaceted problems that our clients face.

Our diversely experienced team has worked both for land development companies and for municipalities. This comprehensive understanding of the internal dynamics of both parties is crucial in communicating ideas that lead to effective critical paths forward and successful project outcomes.
