People

Vita Nuova is an integrated services firm. The toughest revitalization and redevelopment projects require experts from a broad range of fields looking at the problem together. Instead of hiring multiple firms, Vita Nuova brings expertise in real estate, planning and design, economic development, market analysis, stakeholder communications, and ecological revitalization. Selecting the right expertise for each challenge is a key to the success of our projects. Listed below are some of our experts.
