A Market-Based Approach to Regenerative Urbanism

Regensia offers complimentary strategy and design solutions that make regenerative urbanism clear, compelling, and actionable


We help communities envision bold regenerative goals and provide strategic support on how they can be achieved. Our Regenerative City StandardTM (RCS) is a pioneering guide that provides the vision and goals of net positive urban development, while our REVATM (Regenerative Value Assessment) platform benchmarks and assesses a community’s unique urban systems performance and regenerative potential.

We design regenerative district infrastructure systems that power resource abundant, resilient, and equitable urban developments. Our Integrated Utility Hub (IUH) serves as a community’s metabolic engine by transforming waste into renewable assets, while our Integrated Utility System (IUS) and coordinated biophilic infrastructure solutions expand regenerative city capacities and qualities of place.

Regenerative City Assessment & Grid Design for San Francisco. Regensia’s Joshua Foss was contracted to lead a study that helped define regenerative urbanism for SF and outline the emerging approach’s robust value proposition. The study utilized Regensia’s REVATM platform to benchmark and evaluate the regenerative potential of SF’s Central SoMa district, and introduced innovative design strategies (including an Integrated Utility Hub/System) that would enable the district to become fully regenerative.
