Ochsner Hare & Hare is an established industry leader, continuing to display expertise in urban and regional planning and design, land planning, community and neighborhood redevelopment, parks and recreation planning and design, commercial and retail design, residential community design and a full range of real estate development planning services, including market assessment and financial feasibility assessment.
Hare & Hare, founded in 1910, built a national practice and played a significant role in the development of Kansas City, Missouri. The Hare’s collaboration with George Kessler on Kansas City’s Parks and Boulevards system, the original Country Club Plaza, and residential communities within J.C. Nichols’ Country Club District marked the firm as one of the most prestigious of the region. In 1979 Ochsner & Associates, led by Ralph Ochsner, acquired Hare & Hare and added experience in public policy planning and created Ochsner Hare & Hare (OHH).
In 2014 Ochsner Hare & Hare merged with Olsson,a nationally recognized, employee-owned firm specializing in planning and design, engineering, field services, environmental, and technology. Founded in 1956 on the very mindset that drives us today, we’re here to improve communities by making them more sustainable, better connected, and more efficient. Simply put, we work to leave the world better than we found it.
As a Student Intern with Olsson, you’ll receive flexible hours and paid holidays.
