Suburban development continues to make up the vast percentage of all new development both in the Oklahoma City metro and across the country. Using today’s best practices, Richard McKown applies his knowledge of urban development and urban philosophy to influence his new neighborhood development through shared open space, reduced setbacks, increasing landscaping, and other creative methods. Demand for suburban housing has not decreased but the expectation for the amenities has changed. Learn how Richard and his team have addressed the new market conditions and maybe he will even share his thoughts on the how COVID will impact both his urban and suburban designs in the future.
