Karp Strategies is an urban planning strategy consulting firm that builds stronger communities and thriving cities. We partner with our cross-sector clients to identify their unique needs and provide tailored solutions. We take analysis to action to allow our clients to make better decisions – and ultimately, to build stronger communities and better cities. We deeply value our holistic analytic methods, and maintain strong core values that equity and upside can go hand in hand when working on planning and development projects. We work on projects around the country, with projects currently underway or starting across the NYC region, Atlanta, and greater Boston. Our team works at the sweet spot where data, people, and place intersect: we strive to understand what drives change in places, and how people, businesses, and institutions exist and can thrive within that change.
Karp Strategies celebrated five years in June 2020, and we’ve grown tremendously since inception from one person to a team of 14. Due to COVID-19, we are working remotely through 2020 with the hopes of returning to our offices in Manhattan’s Financial District in 2021. This position will be fully remote, with access to tools to ensure great remote work, and could change to in-office in 2021 if safety and health circumstances change. We value and celebrate diversity and inclusion in our team. Karp Strategies is active in the field: our team members are involved with APA-NY’s Urban Design and Diversity Committees, ABNY, IEDC, NYBC, CoreNet, OHNY, RPA, Coro, ULI….let’s just say we are plugged into the action and keep our finger on the pulse.
With current projects ranging from economic and community development planning initiatives to stakeholder analysis and engagement, from infrastructure feasibility and resiliency studies to real estate advisory, Karp Strategies is working with many of the industry’s most dynamic partner firms and clients on pressing, timely challenges facing the country, region, and our city.
As our company kicks off additional projects, we seek to meet thinkers and doers interested in joining us who care as much about urban change and neighborhoods as we do. Karp Strategies is actively interviewing for a PT Graduate Analyst (Graduate Student Intern). Graduate Analysts support projects through research and writing, data analysis and visualization, engagement/facilitation support, and through supporting business development and marketing initiatives.
