People Places is a New Urbanist Real Estate development company founded by Frank Starkey in 2013 to create vibrant, people-oriented residential and retail places in walkable settings.
We believe that a society of connected people is better than a society of separated individuals and actively seek projects that encourage cultural diversity, inclusion, and equity.
Our work is currently centered on the revitalization of Downtown New Port Richey, Florida, a charming town founded in the early 20th Century. We do this through education, the activation of public spaces, and projects that have the greatest potential to improve the community and create places for people to connect.
With our deep belief in the power of walkable urban places, we have taken a strategic approach to help bring the town back to life. We seek out the projects that seem most challenging but have the greatest potential to improve the town for residents, businesses, and visitors. Then we invest aggressively in inspiring design, high-quality construction, and a thoughtful curation of the businesses and activities that enliven these re-invigorated spaces.
