The importance of connecting to the community is integral to Steiner + Associates’ vision and work. Steiner + Associates projects change communities in profound and lasting ways, and that is not just a very fortunate accident–it is the result of a conscious, purposeful and consistent effort to design and deliver spaces and places where people come together to live, work, play and celebrate. Steiner’s relationships with, and connections to, the communities and regions surrounding its projects are wide and deep. From donating millions of dollars to local charities and establishing ongoing scholarships to hosting fundraisers and community events and supporting hundreds of non-profit organizations, Steiner + Associate projects are not just social and commercial successes, but true community resources and powerful economic engines.
