Stellar Business Award

ERA-co Recognized as Most Innovative Place Brand in New York


The placemaking industry is undergoing a radical transformation, and global experience consultancy ERA-co is leading the way. ERA-co helps cities and communities reinvent themselves, build resilience, and position themselves for the future. Their services are especially crucial in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has increased remote work, left office buildings vacant, and spurred migration away from expensive urban areas.

Unlike other placemaking consultancies, ERA-co weighs every factor that goes into creating beautiful, sustainable, enjoyable environments in which people, businesses, and organizations thrive. ERA-co has assembled a unique team of specialists, from data analysts, researchers, and ethnographers, to writers, marketers, and other creative professionals who expertly handle every step of the placemaking process. 

Their transformational plans are not only based on robust empirical research, but also spring from the inspiration that only true masters of their crafts can deliver. With the benefit of ERA-co’s expertise and guidance, communities of all kinds can ensure a vibrant future.
