Urban populations are growing fast. We help local and regional authorities define bold urban growth strategies.

Accommodating the scale of urban population growth demands major efforts in new and affordable housing delivery. New commercial development concepts are also required. Obstacles come in the form of high costs for land to build on that is accessible by public transportation, coupled with time-consuming planning and environmental procedures, accessibility of sustainable financing and lack of capacity in the construction industry. Moreover, accommodating population growth also creates increasing demand for more and better public transportation, parks, schools, and other amenities that improve quality of life in urban settings.

RITTERWALD supports local and regional authorities in defining bold urban growth strategies with our competencies in urban housing, planning and placemaking, alongside urban design. We can help arrange financing and public-private partnerships that suit residential investments.
