The kind of development we do at Fabric requires creativity; experience; intentional strategies; and a different approach to design, finance, construction and marketing.
It’s not the easy way out.
It is, however, a key way to meet the challenges to the sustainability of the city. Development that is truly human-scale includes people of limited means, and embraces art, history and a variety of cultures. It strengthens the social fabric of a city and creates an amenity that attracts new residents.
From an investment standpoint—the numbers, the track record of performance—it’s all there. We just do it differently than other developers.
This is the way to operate in the urban market today.
The reinvention of a city is a growth market. At Fabric, we’re at the forefront of development that responds to a generational shift, and meets the individualized demands of the new and future residents of these cities.
While we may have more hurdles in creating a project, the value created is more sustainable.
Bolts of Cloth
When developing in an emerging city that’s rapidly evolving, it’s smart to work in “bolts of cloth”—build the base of a neighborhood, and then weave your presence into the fabric of that community.
This method informs the different kinds of neighborhoods we build in, as well as the design of the projects we undertake. In essence, it responds to the real needs of the community.
