  • Overview

    DREAM’s Urban Design & Planning studio prioritizes inclusion and empathy to create spaces that work for everyone. Powered by diversity, curiosity, and sensitivity, our team designs for transformative placemaking that speaks to local culture and community priorities. Our process is tailored to the uniqueness of each project. Through comprehensive community and stakeholder engagement, we are able to build alignment and consensus, identifying potential challenges and creative solutions that reflect the aspirations of the community.

    DREAM’s urban designers and planners work within the overlapping spheres of planning, development, and community-building. We understand the forces that contribute to inviting spaces that draw people to visit and linger. Our expertise in Urban Design allows us to bridge the gap between the architecture of individual buildings and the larger site context, and to understand how broad policies affect built form.

  • Overview

    DREAM Development is the development arm of DREAM Collaborative. As a 100% minority-owned development firm, we specialize in mixed-income and mixed-use commercial projects. Our real estate development and consulting arm was created to change the equity lens in the rapidly changing real estate industry. In cities like Boston, DREAM is offering a fresh, inclusive perspective on neighborhood and community development by prioritizing community voices.

    We offer a vertically integrated design and development approach, providing design that improves quality of life that is also a sound investment. DREAM brings a holistic alternative to the conventional development ‘package’ for greater amenity and public realm activation. Our inclusive stakeholder and community engagement processes and sustainable practices ensures that we maximize our impact with each project. We draw from our network of MBE, WBE, and other underrepresented businesses to create diverse development teams, allowing for more equitable participation in our transformative projects.
