With ongoing challenges to improve urban density as part of managing population growth and city resilience, residential communities must be developed more efficiently and affordably without sacrificing design excellence. The broad disciplines and skills available within AJA and our associated consultants can assist from early investigation of site feasibilities up to project implementation, with project outcomes across a wide range of urban and suburban typologies based on contextual and environmental design thinking. Our work in these areas continues to grow with demand for walkable living environments that can serve local needs based on proximity to work, shopping, culture and recreation, with contingent reductions in transport needs and prospects for improving social fabric and welfare for the aging and disadvantaged.
