Planning and Development
The Sorba team supports owners, developers, and designers with conceptual planning from beginning to end by assessing project goals; evaluating both the potential uses and unique constraints of each property; and evaluating the accessibility of the parcel, availability of existing supporting transportation networks, and impact on the surrounding community.
Throughout the planning and development process, we anticipate challenges and work to reduce their probability and impact. Our proven process guides the project through the entitlement and jurisdictional planning processes, making our client’s vision a reality.
Sorba appreciates the importance of stormwater management, both for the sustainability of the environment, and for the protection of our clients’ assets and the public utility system.
