Why work with us
Urban planners who understand cities
A city is not a building, and more planning doesn’t always lead to better outcomes. Good cities are dynamic, messy, innovative, and ever-changing. Trying to guess every activity and design every building stifles the creativity that makes cities great. We prefer to open new doors by creating flexible frameworks that can host multiple uses and evolve to meet changing conditions.
Designed for growth
A real city is never finished. Fitted Projects plans are scalable, using the principles of urban Economics and urban planning to create simple designs that maximize flexibility and make it easy to expand, while minimizing the initial investment. Our urban planners create flexible layouts that will work for generations, using the same principles that created the cities we love today.
Focused on pedestrian issues
Cities work when people can connect. Our plans maximize opportunities for walking, cycling, and public transit. More than just greenwashing, our team knows that great cities use these public goods to create density, connecting workers, residents, and businesses, and building opportunity into the fabric of the city. and creating dynamic markets that people will compete to access.
Not just a pretty picture
A city is more than concrete and steel. Rules, norms, and regulations determine how vibrant, chaotic or sanguine your city will become. The rules of the game shape future outcomes much more than a rendering or a masterplan. Our approach combines nuts and bolts urban planning with the development of a regulatory framework that can maximize value creation for your firm, your investors, and the citizens of the city you are building.
