Short Term Action. Long Term Change.  


Urban Implementation is a pre-vitalization consulting firm.  We conceptualize, design, and build innovative solutions for your city and neighborhoods.  Our “get it done” approach results in innovative, creative projects that are efficiently executed on time and on budget.     

Our focus is on temporary use activations of vacant or abandoned properties, temporary and permanent street scape design, and public art installations.  Our projects are designed to reduce slum and blight, improve economic activity, and enhance the quality of life.  

Urban Implementation’s principals, Brad Knoefler and Mark Lesniak, have been conceptualizing, designing, building and implementing temporary parks, public art, and streetscapes in Downtown Miami since 2009.  Brad and Mark were co-recipients of the Urban Environmental League's 2012 Orchid Award for Excellence in Advocacy for the Environment.  Our projects have been featured on NPR, the Miami Herald, the Tactical Urbanism Handbook, and the cover of the Downtown Miami Art Guide. 

Here are some examples of our work.
