Our Firm

Founded in Miami Beach in 2009, Street Plans is an internationally recognized urban planning, design, architecture, and transportation planning practice with offices in New York and Miami. The firm has an expertise in integrating placemaking and mobility with broader land use, urban design, public engagement, and comprehensive planning goals. 

A central part of our planning methodology is a focus on short-term implementation we call Tactical Urbanism. Street Plans is recognized as the leading practitioner/steward of the global Tactical Urbanism movement. Principals Tony Garcia and Mike Lydon are the authors of the acclaimed Tactical Urbanism book, published by Island Press in 2015, and the firm has so far published six open-source guides on the methodology. 

We believe that the key to creating vibrant streets, public spaces and towns is through high quality design and authentic public outreach. We work with clients to identify ways to create and activate public spaces, while at the same time creating plans for streets and neighborhoods that have both short term-tactics and long-term strategies for implementation.
