Soto is Spanish for a forest that grows on the banks of a river; to us Soto is a philosophy and a way of living fully and authentically, with meaning and intention. It is about embracing design in all forms, championing the big ideas and sweating the small details. It is about working collaboratively and respectfully, enjoying the process as much as the outcome. Above all, it’s about crafting together amazing spaces and lasting structures that enrich our neighborhoods & lives.
Our expertise includes the design, documentation and construction of community-based facilities and thousands of multifamily, active adult and student residence units. We understand the constraints, complexities and opportunities presented by urban infill, mixed-use and mixed-construction developments and have honed a process that organizes the innumerable details and decisions each project presents into a collaborative design process. We combine our client's vision with our knowledge of local requirements and our talent crafting valuable, exceptional spaces that enrich our neighborhoods and cities.
Our expertise also includes work with local Housing Authorities and Federal Funding Agencies (DHCD, DCHFA, CDA, HUD, etc). We understand the goals and limitations presented in Public-Private partnership developments, whether in new construction or renovations projects.
Whether your project is new construction, a gut-renovation or a tenant-in-place renovation, we have the expertise to lead your project through successful completion.
