Renaissance exists for one reason: to create cities that work.

We do this by working with communities to reframe issues, rethink what is possible, and reinvigorate systems-level thinking to help solve complex city problems. We do this using the lens of integrated land use and transportation planning to create plans, policies, and strategies that better connect people, places, and opportunity.

And right now…we are growing. We have several new projects underway that present great opportunities for new ideas and new leadership.


Renaissance doesn’t make things; we foster ideas that can spark new calls to action to solve community-level challenges. That means we are a people-powered company supported by innovative technical tools and decades of industry experience. We are at our best when we can harness the collective curiosity and the talent of individuals at all levels of the organization and from multi-disciplinary backgrounds to implement creative approaches to the work at hand.

With five East Coast offices, we’re big on cross-office collaboration and insights that emerge from knowledge exchange between people with diverse life experiences.   

You can stay plugged in through our firmwide weekly touch point meetings and by participating in our regular tech lunches that highlight projects, tools, and new topics of interest.

When we see a community that is stuck or out of balance, we seek to surpass what’s been done, explore what’s possible and break down barriers needed to create a new path forward. Calling all change-makers!

Yeah, we’re boundary-breakers too.
