Our cities and neighborhoods deserve great public space.

When properly cared for, urban plazas, parks and streets unite communities, providing safe shared places to relax, play, connect and celebrate.

When neglected, they divide communities and undermine shared values.

At Build Public we apply the spirit of innovation to empower neighborhoods to fund, build and maintain great public places.

We Build Trust, Place, and Policy.


We design and develop new neighborhood-scale institutions to finance, manage and maintain successful public space for the long term.

We partner with neighborhoods, cities developers and foundations to fund and build great public places.

We advise cities on how to foster better public space through innovative partnerships and value-capture strategies.
