Cities struggle with new challenges-a worsening shortage of skilled labor, outdated and failing infrastructure, and land use patterns that are not sustainable from public health, environmental or economic perspectives. ~ Urban Land Institute
Aribra Development Consulting (Aribra) was founded as a think tank and real estate development consultancy to promote and demonstrate best practices in the built environment with a primary focus on the smaller city. Aribra provides two distinct but complimentary services: 1) fee development services and 2) Aribra.com.
In our research, we found a plethora of information on efforts to encourage infill development, create pedestrian-friendly streets and develop human scale communities for larger metropolitan regions (New York, San Fransico, Chicago etc). There is very little literature, however, on smaller locales. Aribra serves as that bridge that will aid smaller cities in successfully implementing redevelopment initiatives.
Aribra offers possible solutions to public health conditions attributed, in part, to inadequate community design. We profile thought leaders, developers and projects that best exemplify what can be accomplished when an integrated approach is taken in building community. Aribra.com distributes content on issues surrounding urban planning, community development, sustainable design and public health.
Aribra seeks to rebuild communities offline through communities online, utilizing the core principles of sustainable development; environmental, social and economic.
