New Urbanism: Traditional Neighborhood Development
Developing Main Street
Public-Private Partnerships in Development
Steve Maun is an expert on the bottom line in building traditional neighborhood developments. He is the president of LeylandAlliance LLC, a Tuxedo, New York-based company that is taking a leading role in creating traditional neighborhoods across the Northeast, mid-Atlantic and Southeast. Maun has been a student of the New Urbanism TND movement since its inception, and has fostered the vision now pursued by LeylandAlliance — to build a new company exclusively focused on the creation of extraordinary places to live — places that embrace tradition while setting new standards for innovation and environmental responsibility. To carry out its vision, LeylandAlliance forms strong working partnerships with talented and dedicated professionals who share its values and support its vision.
LeylandAlliance has six communities in various stages of development, including three public-private initiatives: East Beach in Norfolk, Va., Hammond's Ferry in North Augusta, SC.; Storrs Center Alliance, a new “Main Street” neighborhood planned to complement the University of Connecticut in Mansfield, Conn., and two active-adult neighborhoods in historic main street communities in the Northeast: Warwick Grove in Warwick, NY. and Madison Landing in Madison, Conn. LeylandAlliance is serving as builder/developer for its Northeast neighborhoods.
Maun and LeylandAlliance's award-winning projects have been featured by the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, BusinessWeek, Coastal Living, CNN, National Public Radio, and Planning Magazine, among others.
Maun is a graduate of Princeton University and an executive board member of the National Town Builders Association, a leading organization advocating Smart Growth and Traditional Neighborhood Design. He speaks regularly on topics such as smart growth development, New Urbanism, the impact of details in creating great places, main street living, and public-private partnerships.
