It’s official. The transition is complete and we’re off! Thank you so much for the continued support and encouragement as the project was and continues to be underway.
I founded The Aribra Group, LLC as a think tank and real estate development services organization 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.
Aribra.com serves as an online forum and blog to exchange ideas advancing sustainable real estate development within small and medium-sized cities (populations less than 500,000). 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.com serves as that bridge that will aid smaller cities in successfully implementing redevelopment initiatives. Aribra will also offer possible solutions to public health conditions attributed, in part, to inadequate community design. Additionally, 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 has contributors that blog on issues surrounding urban planning, community development, design and public health. The Aribra Group seeks to rebuild communities offline through communities online, utilizing the core principles of sustainable development; environmental, social and economic.
I’m excited about the positive trends in real estate toward more human scale, walkable environments. You’re invited to join the conversation and community as we usher in another voice advancing sustainability in the built environment.
