Vision / Action / Change


Communities at every scale, from neighborhoods to college campuses, seek to respond to evolving social, economic and environmental conditions. Master plans are the guides for this evolution. At Grimm + Parker, we seek planning solutions that respect and reflect the unique essence of each place while offering a roadmap for sustainable growth.

Working collaboratively with our clients and their stakeholders, we help communities transform themselves with plans that give form to vision; inspire action and the momentum to stay the course; and offer an achievable framework for positive change.

Neighborhoods:

We focus on building and rebuilding the physical community fabric to create safe, walkable environments that offer diverse, high quality and affordable housing choices; shared public amenities; and improved services and infrastructure to support an engaged and sustainable way of life.

  • New housing master plans addressing community needs and the vision of our clients
  • New mixed-use neighborhoods that support rich and diverse lifestyles built on smart growth principles
  • Neighborhood revitalization bringing recognition, dignity and new life to every community through quality architecture and urban design

Campuses:

Thriving campuses foster physical connectivity and human interaction – nurturing learning and innovation.  College students expect and deserve a memorable campus experience with a unique sense of place.  We understand learning happens everywhere and take a “learning landscape” approach to campus planning, using buildings and the spaces between them as opportunities for meaningful engagement among students, faculty and staff.

  • Campus master plans and master plan updates that support the institutional mission and vision through growth and change in the physical environment
  • Precinct and sector plans that address improving or reimagining a smaller portion of the campus in response to specific facility or programmatic needs
