Steve has been a student of New Urbanism since its inception, and fostered the vision now pursued by LeylandAlliance – to contribute to the revitalization of cities and towns, often in partnership with the public sector, and working with university communities.


Steve's career in real estate development began with the adaptive reuse of historic properties in New York City, followed by more than ten years of developing innovative residential communities in Orange County, and then  working with Howard and Lou to lead Leyland toward its current position as one of the nation's foremost New Urbanist developers.   


Steve is a board member of The Congress for the New Urbanism, The Seaside Institute, and The National Town Builders' Association, leading organizations advocating smart growth and traditional neighborhood design. Steve is a graduate of Princeton University.
