We Are Innovative Dedicated Visionaries Strategic

A note from our Chairman and Chief Development Officer

When we set out to form Streetworks Development, our goal was to create a different kind of development company. One that listens before it speaks. One that views development from the street-up, not the roof-down. One that encourages prosperity, not just profitability. One that creates assets for its communities, not just buildings.

Decades later, we’re fulfilling that vision every day. We pride ourselves on being great listeners, but we want to become even better. We believe that authentic and enduring development draws on inspiration from as many voices as possible from the surrounding community of businesses and residents; it doesn’t come from an outsider’s vision being imposed upon them. Sometimes it means that our projects take a little bit longer – and may cost us a bit more – but this spirit of collaboration helps us build spaces that complement their surroundings while building long-term economic and social value in their communities.

After 30+ years of development experience, we like to think that we’re still students of how to make our strategy more thoughtful, smart, and sustainable. But, we will make these promises: we will bring passion to our work, we will collaborate with community stakeholders in good faith, and we will reject cookie-cutter development approaches. And, above all, we will strive to be good neighbors each and every day.

Thank you,
Ken Narva
