I helped develop an Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) for blocks adjacent to 50 Ave SW and Elbow Drive SW in Calgary. The ARP included included a redesigned cross-section for 50 Ave SW, a regulating plan for managing setbacks, frontage orientation, and contextually-sensitive building types, and a conceptual mixed pedestrian-vehicular plaza design for Britannia Plaza.

In addition to writing and creating content for the ARP, I conducted walking catchment analyses and built 3D existing- and proposed-conditions models (buildings and terrain) using CityEngine and ArcGIS.
