The Changing Ground Project is a pilot housing and community development initiative whose mission is to use land readjustment strategies to build community wealth while easing the land assemblage process for investors. Our objective is to transform low-density sprawl into mixed-use, walkable areas.     

"The trouble with land is that they're not making it anymore." - Will Rogers

Land Readjustment refers to  a physical redevelopment of property, where existing property owners are not displaced, but retain ownership in the future development in a new, more valuable physical format.

It can be a powerful urban development tool addressing a range of issues, from income inequality to environmental sustainability.
