About NDC.

Creating stronger communities.

There is inspiration in the whole idea of quality of life and how space affects living.

Neighborhoods are where we experience life. Our commitment to neighborhood revitalization through access to affordable, professional design services remains constant. 

There is value in all places. We work in neighborhoods that others only talk about. We are equally balanced between authenticity, altruism, and thoughtfulness. We are respectful, transparent, and unbiased. Our model for community engagement consistently produces outstanding outcomes and allows us to paint the future-forward vision of what neighborhoods can be.
