Introducing the New

We're very excited to announce the launch of our redesigned website! We've rebuilt our entire site from the ground up to better highlight all the innovative work we've had the privilege to be involved in over the past 28 years.

We've also added an exciting new resource: Under #This tab, there is now a growing and searchable database of Street of the Day photos and locations from around the world. #StreetoftheDay helps provoke conversation about the essential ingredients of street designs that captivate our imaginations, boost property value, and embody civic life. Explore today to find useful precedents, and pan around in 360° Street View.

Dover, Kohl & Partners Continues its Work in Albany, NY

In what is proving to be a rewarding collaboration between consultant, the City, and community, Dover, Kohl & Partners is once again at work with the community of Albany, New York. Back in May of this year, Dover-Kohl worked closely with Clarion and the City for ReZone Albany's Warehous District Design Workshop. Dover-Kohl and the City have now turned their attention to the South End community this week. As part of the workshop, members of the public got together in small groups to discuss the community's future and what that could look like. 

Albany’s “South End” is bounded by the City limits to the south, the Hudson River to the east, and following Frisbee Avenue to Empire State Plaza along the west. The South End includes a diverse community with a mix of residential neighborhoods, public and private investments, as well as commercial and industrial areas.  

As Christopher Spencer, Albany's planning director said to us of the overall Rezone Albany project: "We want to have the right rules in place to get what the community is looking for."
