In addition to her considerable architecture and design talent, Cindy Harvey has proven to be a true thought leader in our industry, driving important conversations on density, mixed-use architecture, affordable housing, and sustainable design.
As Associate Principal and Commercial Architecture market lead, Cindy applies decades of industry experience and place-making principles to create master planned communities where people live, work, and play. In partnership with our developer clients, she works to create groundbreaking environments that range from high-density, urban multi-family, and mixed-use transit oriented development to historic rehabilitation and resort properties.
Cindy is particularly passionate about designing compact, efficient urban solutions and mixed-use environments, and improving housing affordability. She is also enthusiastic about the impact of technology on future living with regard to traditional brick and mortar concepts. Prior to joining RNL, Cindy spent much of her career with KEPHART, where she was a principal and led a team focused on high-density multifamily and mixed-use communities across the United States. Her project work there included 51 North High Street, Kent Place Residences, The Logan, Two-Nine North, and Skye 2905.
Cindy is a frequent speaker on topics such as future living trends and place-making. She also founded CRASH, a creative think-tank for the exploration of alternative methods and advancing concepts related and connected to the future of living. Cindy is a member of the Colorado Code Change committee, serves on the Board of Directors for Housing Colorado (the State’s affordable housing advocacy group), and is a member of ULI’s Transit Oriented Development Council, where she also serves as Foundation Ambassador. She is a graduate of the University of Colorado, where she earned both her bachelor’s degree in Environmental Design and her master’s degree in Architecture.
Outside of the office, Cindy is an avid traveler, scuba diver, and fan of history. Whether exploring the Coliseum in Rome or sunken WWII ships in the South Pacific, she enjoys experiencing different cultures, meeting new people, and seeing different parts of the world.
