About HUB Planning + Urban Design

HUB Planning + Urban Design was founded in 2009 by Dana Burkhardt with the idea of providing cost-effective urban design and land use policy solutions.

Unlike traditional land planning and architectural consulting firms that inherently hold a myopic perspective within their own disciplines, HUB is the center of a multidisciplinary network of professionals who have a broad understanding of social culture and the ability to efficiently orchestrate components across the entire planning and design spectrum. Approaching projects from multiple disciplines allows for new methods and efficiencies to emerge and innovative concepts to come to life.

New and smart ideas are surfacing everyday and at HUB, we look at the collective potential for each project. Great ideas don’t necessarily spawn from large corporations anymore and they’re not always cost effective. Today’s business environment is evolving faster than ever and we believe that great ideas come from a collaboration of creative design and policy professionals who seek innovative solutions to today’s challenges.
