ESG is a national leader in the creation of design-driven, developer-focused environments that build, renew and sustain the public realm. In the 1990s, the Urban Land Institute lauded ESG for “writing the book” on mixed-used design. In 2007, the American Institute of Architects Minnesota recognized ESG’s “unparalleled” and “tremendous impact … in the area of urban design, residential and mixed-use housing” by honoring us with its prestigious Firm Award.
Our commitment to enriching the built environment is the result of a multi-faceted practice and fully collaborative design vision based on urban and architectural design principles honed through decades of research and practice. Chief among these principles is engagement with diverse, often competing stakeholders. Our expertise in consensus building allows us to maximize a project’s potential and add value to the built environment, while exceeding clients’ expectations.
