Mr. Nels Nelson

Senior Planner

Stantec's Urban Places


I’ve played a central role in directing large-scale redevelopment projects, public realm and placemaking studies, resilience and adaptation plans, and community engagement initiatives. I led the design of the world’s first WELL Community district in Tampa, Florida; contributed to a CNU Charter Award-winning placemaking guide; and have presented at national conferences on community-scale design issues. I bring a clear analytical sensibility and innovative approaches to planning for diverse projects across different contexts and client types. I work at Stantec’s Urban Places, where I manage projects and oversee strategic marketing and business development initiatives. I’m an advocate for active transportation and Boston Cyclists Union board member.
