A Bit About

Eric Orozco

Eric Orozco is an Urban Planner with a multi-disciplinary background in architecture, equitable development, and literature. He earned a Master of Architecture from MIT and a Master of Arts in New Testament Backgrounds from Jerusalem University College. Eric has brought his diverse experiences to Neighboring Concepts since 2005, where he has participated in collaborative projects for affordable housing development, mass transit, and community regeneration. He is a LEED Accredited Professional in Neighborhood Development and has served as a Project Administrator in green development projects.

Eric is also a published writer, an avid illustrator, and a frequent volunteer in local community initiatives. His planning and design experience encompasses many of North Carolina's rapid transit and high-profile development projects. A special focus of his work is addressing the historical inequities of urban planning practices, and he has brought this work to bear on the Charlotte Center City 2040 Vision Plan, 5 Points Forward for Charlotte's Historic West End, and the Charlotte Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan. Eric's comprehensive experience, from community engagement through construction, gives him the ability to expertly design for community resilience and environmental sustainability. He is an active board member of the Historic West End Partners and has contributed to the foundation of Charlotte's first community land trust, the West Side CLT.
