Urban Assets was founded by Melissa Huggins on the belief that planning and development are inherently collaborative. Projects are more successful when they are proactively positioned within the context of the surrounding neighborhood, the city’s adopted plans, and the overall goals of the community.

Urban Assets delivers the expertise to help integrate a project into its environment through savvy process negotiations and a deep understanding of the urban context. The firm’s collaborative approach builds greater understanding and appreciation for planning, builds capacity for future projects, and makes the process even easier the next time.
