Merging principles of ecology and sustainable place making with urban design
We integrate innovative entrepreneurs, forward thinking retail concepts, and next-generation green spaces into community centric real estate developments.
We transform underutilized spaces into aesthetically appealing, revenue generating hubs.
Using food as a catalyst for socioeconomic development, we created a scalable model for urban regeneration in postindustrial cities around the globe.
The Green Street Academy (GSA), Agriculture, Technology, & Innovation, Center (ATIC) serves as a national model for entrepreneurial applied learning and education. Forged through an innovative public, private partnership, between development firm, Urban Pastoral, impact investment group, BmoreAg, and progressive charter school, Green Street Academy, ATIC will act as a extension of GSA's dynamic education model and cutting edge sustainable campus infrastructure.
The center will consist of a commercial scale, state-of-the- art, controlled environment agricultural (CEA) facility, producing both locally grown edible produce, and added value florals / tropicals, applied learning lab, flex-space for cooking demonstrations and community gatherings, as well as a retail market outlet for student-run ventures.
Located in a former auto body shop in Remington, a burgeoning industrial community, R. House, is a European style food hall serving as a launch pad for the concepts of 10 talented chefs and food entrepreneurs. In partnership with Seawall Development, Urban Pastoral designed, built, and currently manages two highly popular retail brands within the $15M development.
Built in 1887, the American brewery was a preeminent business in the East Baltimore community, and the largest brewery in the state of Maryland, until it closed it doors in 1973, and subsequently sat vacant for over 30 years. Redeveloped in 2009, it now serves as the headquarters for workforce development social enterprise Humanim, Inc. In 2015 Urban Pastoral partnered with Humanim to activate underutilized space on the property with a state of the art hydroponic farm, research, and training facility.
