Urban Planning + Design

McAdams’ Urban Planning practice focuses on planning and designing great places with reality-based plans, policies, maps and illustrations to guide public and private actions.

From plan-making to place-making, we bring a multidisciplinary approach to develop projects at a variety of scales, from downtowns to park systems. 

We are known for creating experiences through experience, and our Urban Design practice supports both public and private sector clients in bringing their goals to fruition. Our team leverages the exceptional talent of planning, landscape architecture, urban design and a variety of engineering skills to reimagine spaces and places for the public to experience.
