Matthew Lister


Matthew Lister is a creative urban place-maker, real estate development strategist, and designer. As an Director at Gehl — New York, he focuses on the intersection of real estate strategy and the design and activation of public spaces.

Matthew approaches project development and implementation holistically, understanding that creating or enhancing urban places requires the integration of creative programming and design, policy, management, market strategies, financial feasibility, stakeholder capacity and buy-in, and the power of a compelling project narrative. He believes that collaborative, multi-disciplinary teams, when engaged with an empowered stakeholder set, generate the best ideas and solutions with the most opportunity for implementation and success.

Often working at multiple scales with both private and public clients he works to develop aspirational yet economically sustainable and implementable solutions.

Matthew also brings an expertise in collaborative engagement with diverse communities in the urban change and development process. Matthew currently teaches graduate level urban redevelopment planning at Pratt Institute in New York City and has taught both undergraduate and graduate level classes at the University of Miami School of Architecture.
