Thanks to him, my property is state-of-the-art and …98% leased… Robert’s concepts…have been so well received by the community…”                                                           Deborah Butler President Butler Enterprises 2019

  “Over the past quarter century, Robert Gibbs has been the most influential practitioner negotiating the intersection between environmental design and urban retail.   His advice and plans have impacted a generation of important projects, new and old town centers that rely upon commerce as their social heart and succeed in no small part due to Robert’s vision and steady hand.”     Jeff Speck, FAICP, LEED-AP, Honorary ASLA  2019
