Jim Bailey

Senior Principal

A recognized thought leader in the design of multifamily environments, Jim has overseen the design of more than 12,000 mostly affordable housing units: from single-family detached to high-rise retrofit and everything in between. Beyond his expertise in housing, his focus is on sustainable neighborhoods and multimodal transit.

He has a long history of community engagement, facilitation, and consensus building. Jim served on San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg’s Housing Policy Task Force and developed the city’s $4 billion Housing Policy Framework.  He was also on the Steering Committee for the Strategic Housing Implementation Plan and chairs San Antonio’s Removing Barriers to Affordable Housing Committee.  A source of great pride for Alamo, he is Board Chair of the non-profit ActivateSA, which he founded.

Bachelor of Architecture, University of Texas at San Antonio | 2001
