John Baucke

Consulting Development Advisor

John brings more than 35 years of experience in planning, entitling and developing complex, mixed-use neighborhood projects.  With a strong background in developing walkable neighborhoods and entitling difficult sites in multi-jurisdictional environments, he works with our consulting economists in preparing market studies and fiscal analysis, coordinates technical and environmental studies, and helps our clients craft market-calibrated development strategies.  His background in community planning and design make him a valuable member of the design team, from concept through execution.  Early in his career John oversaw the cleanup and entitlement of brownfield infill sites for the City of Seal Beach, and later served as the director of entitlements for the Bixby Company, where he collaborated with David Sargent in planning and entitling the Hercules Waterfront District, a 125-acre brownfield site on San Pablo Bay, which represents the largest new traditional neighborhood built in California in the past 75 years.
