A Roadmap for Community Vitality

Our planning practice follows a multidisciplinary approach, with the combined expertise of planners, strategists, engineers, architects and landscape architects. Grounded in research, forecasting data and analytics, we deliver thoughtful and comprehensive roadmaps for large and complex as well as small-scale projects. Whether we are creating site plans for a private development, working with a healthcare facility on a campus master plan, designing public spaces and bike/pedestrian paths or developing airport guidelines, we’re creating the roadmaps for growth that have your organization and community’s long-term vitality at the core.


We provide creative solutions through a well-rounded set of expertise that consider the entire landscape of any project.


“Working with Gresham Smith has been absolutely incredible. It’s been a large learning process for us, but with the right team in place, it makes a multi-million-dollar project run smoothly. We’re building a place where work gets done, and that work is called hope for the people that are not in the building.”

Dave Ramsey, Founder, Ramsey Solutions

“Situated between Nashville’s Buchanan Arts District and Germantown, Historic Buena Vista is a unique neighborhood full of creativity and character. We enjoyed working with Gresham Smith to create a development that supports Historic Buena Vista’s growth and provides a variety of more affordable price points close to downtown.”
