Founded in 2023, Place Guild is your source for the latest news and insights about property, real estate, architecture, and design. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive look at the forces shaping the built environment.

On our site, you’ll find:

  • Reporting on new construction projects, real estate sales, zoning changes, and regional development investments. We cover both residential and commercial real estate.
  • Profiles of leading architects, interior designers, developers, and urban planners. Learn about their design philosophies and most noteworthy projects.
  • Reviews of new buildings and neighborhoods. We critique the design and consider how well it meets the needs of owners, tenants, and the wider community.
  • Advice from experts on buying, selling, renting, renovating, building, and decorating. Whether you’re looking to invest or want tips on redoing your kitchen, we’ve got insider recommendations.
  • Commentary and analysis on urban planning issues and trends influencing cities. We dive into topics like walkability, mixed-use development, housing affordability, adaptive reuse, and sustainability.

The Place Guild team has decades of collective experience covering real estate, architecture, and city planning. Our contributors include journalists, architects, real estate professionals, and urban policy experts.

At Place Guild, we believe where and how we live matters. We hope our reporting provides insights that inform, inspire, and engage our readers.
