Lawrence M. Beals
Todd P. Morey, P.E.
Director of Land Planning & Urban Design
Pat Connolly has years of experience in land evaluation and planning, urban design, permitting, and project management. As the Director of Land Planning and Urban Design, Mr. Connolly employs his diverse set of skills and education as the utility player within the firm. Pat works with clients and stakeholders early on to define and reconcile success for each project to minimize confrontation later in the permitting process. Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, Pat excels at combining disparate pieces of information and design ideas into a cohesive project that a wide array of stakeholders can support. Pat not only provides clients an easy transition from planning to engineering to permitting but also presents a consistent face to regulators and the community that improves trust and buy-in that is critical to any project.
Recently, Pat paused his career at Beals Associates to earn a Master of City Planning from the University of Pennsylvania where he concentrated in Urban Design and earned a Certificate of Real Estate Design and Development. Now, Mr. Connolly blends his years of real-world experience with progressive design thinking to ensure the utility of each project site – however it may be defined – is maximized. The best designs incorporate the history of the site, improve upon current conditions, and complement future plans and goals. No project is alike and that is how Pat likes it.
Over the years, Pat has evaluated and planned parcels of land ranging from 2 acres to over 200 acres. Pat has experience permitting projects in front of many local boards and has been involved in state and federal permitting of larger projects. A specialty of Mr. Connolly’s is researching, planning, and writing Property Evaluations and Feasibility Studies that summarize the (re)development potential of a piece of land, as well as the regulatory constraints, infrastructure impacts, and construction cost estimates. These reports not only inform landowners about their property, but also are commonly used as marketing material by real estate professionals.
Pat attended Colgate University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Geography with a minor in Geology. After graduating from Colgate, Pat and several friends converted a retired school bus into a mobile home and traveled across the US for a summer interviewing and filming local musicians. Overall, Pat is interested in real estate development, urban planning and design, equitable place-making, and resiliency (in all definitions of the word).
