Edward R. Bradford

I’ve had the good fortune of working with Ed for over 20 years. During this time, I’ve learned to appreciate his unique ability to listen, react, resolve, and execute great design while understanding the needs of his client. He is incredibly consistent and always has a positive attitude. Without exception, we all thoroughly enjoy working with Ed and consider him a valued partner at AvalonBay.
Michael Roberts, Senior Vice President of Development, AvalonBay Communities

Known for expertise in housing, hospitality, and master planning work and for extensive collaborations with many of the country’s leading multifamily housing developers, Edward has played an important role in TAT’s continued growth and success since joining the firm in 1991. Highlights of his project work include numerous award-winning residential communities, such as the redevelopment of an 18-acre former hospital site into Arlington 360, a 200-unit residential campus in Arlington, Mass., Battery Wharf, a four-building, $180 million waterfront complex on Boston Harbor; and a broad portfolio of work for national developers including master planning and design for large-scale residential communities across the northeastern United States.

Edward is often sought out by clients for his ability to successfully translate brand values and complex programmatic needs into market-leading design solutions, and his collaborations with national developer AvalonBay Communities have led to the completion of more than 3,000 residential units in multiple distinctive apartment communities. As an expert voice on the desires of multifamily tenants and buyers, Edward’s input on residential amenities has helped to shape trends nationwide. In his new position as a principal at TAT, Ed will take on an expanded leadership and managerial role, while continuing his award-winning project work. A registered architect in Massachusetts and New Jersey, he holds a Master of Architecture from the State University of New York, Buffalo.
