Where some people might see vacant lots and utility infrastructure, Nathan Elliott sees opportunity.

Elliott is a principal with the Office of James Burnett (OJB), a San Diego landscape architecture firm that has received national recognition for the impact their public parks have had on their communities.

Working with Civic San Diego, the city’s Parks and Recreation Department and a team of local consultants, Elliott has led OJB’s preparation of East Village Green’s general development plan (GDP) and his team is currently preparing to begin the design process that will ultimately lead to the park’s construction.
