The Street Society is a collaborative agency promoting innovation across the fields of property development and urban transformation.

Structured around a global network of 38 collaborators, our multidisciplinary team of urban thinkers and designers, writers and illustrators, creative artists and directors, provides our clients with vanguard solutions to complex urban issues.

Whether in Paris, Johannesburg, or Detroit, we've analysed emerging urban trends in the context of current social, technological and environmental evolutions, offered strategic support throughout the development of innovative property projects, and provided valuable insight and tools helping teams innovate and think outside the box.

We are instigators and pioneers with an acumen for ingenuity, here to assist in the development of transformative, inclusive urban and property projects.  

Our services include:

  • advisory services on urban and property trends

  • strategic recommendations for the development of future urban projects

  • set-up of creative and multidisciplinary project teams

  • territorial analysis and stakeholder mapping

  • benchmark and thematic research

  • implementation of pre-development activation plans, including community involvement

  • support in the implementation of development plans

We have worked on projects in Paris, Johannesburg, and Detroit. We love to explore and get involved in new cities.
