About Us

CityCraft Ventures, and the CityCraft process, is specifically designed to turnaround distressed areas within our cities.  Most cities, planners and developers attempt to help these areas with plans that focus too heavily on isolated efforts, streetscape beautification and buildings.  These disparate and cosmetic improvements are important, but The CityCraft team digs deeper. We begin by mapping a community’s assets: human, physical, natural and financial. We connect groups from the private, public and non-profit sectors and build consensus about a vision for the future with a proven community involvement model.

When implemented properly, this thorough investigation and plan implementation creates the stage for value creation with entire communities contributing to the success of their own neighborhoods.  This results in a platform capable of bringing in capital in many forms including financing for building, infrastructure, bonding and business development.

The opportunity is enormous.  There are around 5,000 towns and cities across the US and Canada, most of which have struggled with difficult neighborhoods.  Many are committed to turn these neighborhoods around and provide better opportunities for their citizens, but there are few examples of success. CityCraft does not dictate a solution.  We work to identify and connect resources as an objective outside advisor.
