MASTER PLANNING SAMPLE PROJECTS
2019 | Brooks Campus Masterplan & Sustainability Guidelines
Parra & Co played a crucial role in the revitalization of Brooks, a 1,300-acre mixed-use community in San Antonio, TX, managed by the Brooks Development Authority (BDA). Collaborating as a sub-consultant to Overland Partners, the lead architect and master planner, our mission was to create a comprehensive Master Plan for Brooks, focusing on sustainable development and connectivity while optimizing land use. We aimed to identify the best possible uses for each parcel of land within the community, with an emphasis on promoting low-impact development practices.
Our scope of work encompassed various critical tasks, including acting as a single point of contact for the client, tracking and considering minority goals, and facilitating seamless collaboration among a diverse group of consultants and sub-consultants. We diligently managed schedules and milestones, prepared meeting agendas and minutes, and engaged with key stakeholders such as the City of San Antonio, the San Antonio River Authority, and other partnering agencies. Additionally, our team conducted extensive research to recommend Smart Cities and Sustainability Design Guidelines tailored to the unique needs of the Brooks project, laying the foundation for its sustainable and prosperous future.
