Coplon Associates has designed and permitted numerous subdivision and housing developments for private developers, public agencies and nonprofit organizations. CA strongly believes in the creation of neighborhoods and that standards of design and sensitivity of layout are essential to creating lasting and meaningful residential environments. Design begins at the locus of each home and extends outward through the linkages of roads and open spaces to form the fabric neighborhoods. This philosophy has worked successfully in market rate projects where CA's design work has historically yielded higher sale and resale values than comparable properties. CA has also applied this approach successfully in the design of several signature affordable housing projects in Maine and Massachusetts. CA has substantial experience in the design of conservation subdivisions, sensitively locating development opportunities that allow for the permanent protection of significant natural resources and scenic landscapes.
