The Urban Developer is proudly partnering with Urban Land Institute (ULI) to deliver several case studies from around the world that demonstrate global development best practice.
Phil Kim is Chair and Managing Director Asia Pacific at The Jerde Partnership, Inc. in Hong Kong and Los Angeles, focusing on Jerde’s Placemaking ideas and development of complex urban projects that has helped rejuvenate Asia cities and recognized with over 160 international awards.
He advises governments, including New South Wales and Queensland, and clients on innovation in mixed-use design, retail, urban revitalization, precinct strategy, vertical cities, the value of place and building lasting environmental and social sustainability. Langham Place Hong Kong, Roppongi Hills Tokyo and Quay Quarters Sydney are notable projects representative of people-based Place designs that draw over one billion visitors to Jerde projects around the world annually.
From his home city, Chicago, Doug leads urban design of the world’s great places, both old and new. As the leader of SOM’s global urban design and planning studio, Doug balances conceptual thinking with a realistic, hands-on approach to creating spaces and cities.
Doug is interested in the capacity of design to build community and connect people to one another. Doug’s work is distinguished by an appreciation for each project’s unique challenges and the need for a comprehensive and innovative response. Over the last two decades, he has united disparate stakeholders under cohesive visions, transforming abstract ideas into physical realities.
