Dyett & Bhatia has prepared plans for some of the most vibrant and transformed districts in California — from small city downtowns to some of the most intense urban environments. We have prepared station area plans around almost all operating urban rail systems in the Western U.S. and were retained by the State of California to lead the Capitol Area Plan in Sacramento.
Dyett & Bhatia’s plan and zoning for the 1,600-acre Downtown San Diego is shaping the most intense, vibrant, and integrated live/work community in California. Our Milpitas Transit Area Specific Plan is leading to the largest increase in housing around a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station in the Bay Area, repurposing an older industrial district for contemporary uses. We are leading neighborhood Transit-Oriented Development planning for six stations—and zoning for all stations in the city—for Honolulu’s new urban rail system, the largest urban rail system currently under construction in the Western United States, and specific plans around BART stations in infill and new extension settings.
Our expertise includes physical planning and urban design, building massing, detailed design guidelines and standards, and in-house computer modeling and visual simulation capabilities. Our urban design expertise is complemented by our vast zoning experience — from station areas to large downtowns such as Chicago, San Diego, and Abu Dhabi.
