About

Since 1981, LVA Urban Design Studio has been a leader in its industry because we are committed to generating high quality, sustainable and successful development projects that create a superior quality of life within our communities. Our goal in both land planning and landscape architecture is to focus on our clients’ needs, help them achieve their vision and design projects that are successful from a financial perspective. We’re successful because we know the southwest, its zoning and development regulations and the entitlement process. Our staff has built and maintained an exemplary standing with the municipalities and counties throughout Arizona. Our clients include development companies, homebuilders, multi-family developers, real estate investors, health care organizations, business owners and public agencies in the southwestern United States.

We look forward to providing your planning, development and landscape architecture needs.


Our Mission

To continually grow the company’s service functions of planning and landscape architecture through exceptional service to our clients while promoting industry innovation and professional development opportunities for our team members.


Our Philosophy

Since 1981, we’ve continued to build relationships with clients, residents, city officials and other consultants.  It’s these relationships that have made LVA what it is today–trusted land planners and landscape architects that always have its community in mind.  We believe in public participation and involvement, maintaining the natural landscape and creating projects that fit the environment while returning added value to our clients.

In addition to nurturing external relationships, we also foster internally by treating each team member as family.  It’s this philosophy that has made LVA one of the best places to work.  We respect, listen and support one another.  Clients reap the rewards of our tight knit teamwork each and every time.

We value LVA and their team’s experience with land planning, landscape architecture, entitlements and due diligence. We trust their services and have recommended them to others who want a knowledgeable and responsive team working on their project.”
