Doug Jones, LEED AP

Designing and managing complex projects for more than 14 years, Doug has led some of CMG’s largest redevelopment projects, including St. James Park, Yerba Buena Island Parks and Open Space, Potrero Power Station, and Gateway of Pacific.

Doug believes public spaces should be accessible and enjoyed by all people regardless of socioeconomic status and race—spaces that connect people to each other and to nature. A modernist at heart, Doug plays with the tension between modernism and postmodernism to craft innovative, memorable, and inclusive landscapes.

“CMG is at the forefront of and leading the conversation to many major challenges facing our urban environments and cities. We are advocates for great design, resiliency, and a democratic process which, in the end, lends itself to a better public realm experience for everyone.” – Doug Jones

Doug is excited to build upon the amazing legacy Kevin, Willett, and Chris have built at CMG. He looks forward to finding resilient solutions for our planet and cities to make this world a little bit better each day.

Lauren Stahl, PLA

At CMG, Lauren has contributed her ability to tackle complex projects and effectively lead internal teams on a wide range of projects, including Treasure Island, Yerba Buena Island, Realize Flood Park, and Petaluma River Park. As Associate Principal, Lauren is looking forward to shaping the future of urban landscapes.

A graduate of the University of California, Berkeley and University of Wisconsin, Lauren’s landscape architecture career blends her passions for art and ecology to create vibrant, inviting, and inspiring public spaces.

Her most significant projects include the Smithsonian South Mall Campus Master Plan and Cultural Landscape Report, a site with tremendous national significance and history, and Treasure Island, one of CMG’s (and San Francisco’s) largest and longest redevelopment projects encompassing longevity, complexity, and range of scales. Lauren is excited for the upcoming construction of the first phase of the Treasure Island Parks and Open Spaces—and the creation of a prominent new open-space destination for the city.

Outside of work, Lauren cares for her 1-year-old and enjoys snow sports, cooking, and exploring new cities on foot.

Corbett Belcher

With 20 years of experience shaping the urban and natural environment, Corbett has a deep commitment to creating inspiring, thoughtful, and resilient landscapes with social and environmental benefit.

Inspired by the Avant Garde and the 1970s environmental art movement of singularity, Corbett’s design approach emphasizes relationship and purpose, with the intent to remove the nonessential and deliver spaces that leave room for socialization, contemplation, detailed observation, and a lasting experience.

He is committed to integrating a simplistic environmental approach of reduction and re-use into his work, as is exemplified by his recent projects Bay Area Tech Campus and De-Pave Park. Corbett recently spoke about these timely topics at the 2023 Conference on Landscape Architecture.

Corbett leads several of CMG’s significant projects, ranging from regional waterfront parks to complex large-scale urban redevelopments, including Bay Meadows and Mission Rock. His notable work, prior to CMG, includes Dodger Stadium, Anaheim Farmers Park and Packing District, and the Orange County Great Park.

Corbett cherishes family time and exploring new and familiar places. He finds solace in nature, particularly in higher altitude hiking and introductory mountaineering, seeking quiet spaces to nourish the mind and body.
