As members of the Congress for the New Urbanism, Dover, Kohl & Partners views “disinvestment in central cities, the spread of placeless sprawl, increasing separation by race and income, environmental deterioration, loss of agricultural lands and wilderness, and the erosion of society’s built heritage as one interrelated community-building challenge.”
To meet this challenge we assist our clients in:

Revitalizing Downtown  & Historic Places

The world’s cities are rediscovering the heart of town. Physical design, organization, management, and promotion are all part of resuming work on the settlements already started and that’s the ultimate in “smart growth.”

Designing New Neighborhoods & Towns

Dover, Kohl & Partners designs highly marketable new neighborhoods with places to live, work and shop within walking distance. These new traditional neighborhoods are more functional, efficient, enduring and memorable than routine subdivisions.


Planning Cities & Regions

Metropolitan regions are the essential economic unit today, while environmental concerns call for stewardship of the even larger bio-region. The best new regional plans bridge the gap between close-up details and the big picture.

Reinventing Corridors

Great streets are rarely unintended. Most are the result of intentional design decisions made by visionary people, institutions, or communities. Balancing pedestrian and vehicular needs is essential to creating vibrant places where people and cars can coexist.


Retrofitting Suburbia

Making existing, in-town neighborhoods more desirable places to live, work or invest is the key to curbing outward sprawl. At the same time, suburbia can be made more livable and complete.

Shaping Transit Oriented Development

Creating compact, complete communities focused around transit has become a fast growing trend. Rising oil prices and traffic congestion are just two of the reasons driving the movement toward TOD.


Form Based Codes for Municipal & Private Clients

Redevelopment opportunities and increasing market pressure to create value in urban areas has helped pave the way for mixed-use urban infill projects. These projects are creating safe and vibrant places where people can work and live.


Over the past 30 plus years Dover Kohl & Partners has engaged in a variety of project types and demonstrated that we have the expertise and skills necessary to complete any urban design challenge. Our portfolio ranges from county-wide projects covering thousands of acres to private development projects as small as 10 acres.

Our services include: city/county-wide planningform-based codingnew community master planscommunity revitalization plans, and corridor plans.
