Smarter Streets

An urban research and planning group that helps cities grow to be efficient, low-cost, healthy, sustainable, and happy.

Our latest work.

Research on "road length per person" has exposed surprising details about the relationship between density, costs and how people move around their city.

Check out the details in our Blog.


The road network is the fingerprint of the city, unchanged for centuries.


Do we sufficiently consider the design of new roads on our finances, health, and happiness for so many decades to come?



Exposing the enormous impact of the road network on prosperity is starting place for Smarter Street’s long-term goal: to change the basic DNA of planning, so one day, all development will support the best possible outcomes for human wellbeing.



With the right analysis, we intend to make today’s best urban design tomorrow’s minimum standard.
