master planning

Whether planning a new city, integrating a high-density development into an urban landscape, or creating a multi-phased campus, Columbia Associates' market driven approach adeptly balances developer, community and municipality needs. We seamlessly integrate location, site conditions, economics, zoning, entitlement issues and end-user expectations into profitable and operationally sustainable assets that define communities.

Master Planning is the first step to designing exemplary buildings. Columbia Associates' expertise
in developing strong working relationships with local jurisdictions and neighbors allows the process
to flow smoothly. Our depth and understanding of the real estate market is unusual among
design firms. We understand market dynamics and the impact of time on projects as well as
the value of effective design.

Columbia Associates will get your projects approved because of our effective communications
and positive working relationships with all parties involved. We understand zoning regulations
and how to apply them to create the most effective land use available.

For twenty years our clients have trusted us and our ability to see the big picture and maintain
focus for the benefit of the project and our clients.

Planning is where it all begins. Whether it is a mixed-use master plan for an urban site or a suburban
200 acre office campus, Columbia Associates applies the same thoughtful process to all projects.
We start with a strong organizational concept that recognizes the physical characteristics of
the site, the context of the surrounding environment, the demands of circulation and the goals
of our client. Then the design of the buildings are formulated to utilize the highest and best use
of the available amenities of the site creating cohesive living and working environments.

 

renovation

Master Planning services will include a review of the existing facilities to determine the main
issues and needs of the client. This can be any number of issues, including updating facilities
to ADA compliance, repairing any damaged or outdated structures, and making any
necessary expansions. Phases will be developed prioritizing the issues so completion can be
estimated and reached in a timely manner.

Depending on the clients requests additional services can be provided, including but not limited to:

- Renderings of how the renovated project would look

- Moving to architectural services after a Master Plan is developed
