MEREDITH WENSKOSKI, 37

PRESIDENT + FOUNDER, LIVABLE CITIES STUDIO

Meredith Wenskoski has been the driving force behind the transformation of Denver’s Sun Valley neighborhood into a new EcoDistrict. She has led the project from vision to detailed planning for affordable housing and neighborhood-support uses, and now into implementation, serving as the project’s design lead alongside the Denver Housing Authority and the Sun Valley EcoDistrict Trust (SVED).

As a registered landscape architect, Wenskoski worked for nearly 10 years for one of the nation’s highest-profile landscape design firms, Design Workshop. She ultimately became a principal in the 150-person firm before launching Livable Cities Studio in 2016, where she nurtures a culture of diversity, flexibility and work-life balance. “Meredith respects everyone’s personal time and helps build a work environment that fosters staff’s professional growth at work and also their own personal growth outside of work,” Livable Cities designer Yishuen Lo says.

Wenskoski serves as a volunteer member of the Broncos Stadium Master Planning Steering Committee, helping to shape a successful path for reutilization of the area’s extensive surface parking lots, reconnecting the urban grid for the neighborhoods surrounding it. She is helping the Downtown Denver Partnership plan its 2019 Urban Explorers program, and serves on Denver’s Design Review Committee for the Commons Neighborhood along the Platte River.
