Land

Faced with a growing demand for land redevelopment and expansion, ISL's multidisciplinary team of planners, engineers and landscape architects are well equipped to overcome the challenges that come along with economic growth and meeting the needs and aspirations of the community. Our integrated team works together to address all aspects of urban and rural land development, from statutory and master planning, to land naturalization and brownfield development, to town centre revitalization and transit-oriented innovations.

Recreational facilities and public open spaces play an important role in building strong communities, and our design professionals create welcoming spaces for human interaction and beautiful places that resonate with the personalities of the people that use them. Effective and accessible parks and trails provide active outlets for building overall community cohesiveness by encouraging healthy social connections and keeping residents in touch with the natural environment. Our focus on sustainability ensures that these amenities are long-lasting and will continue to give back to the community for years to come.
