For regional and place-based economic development, urban revitalization, real estate, tourism and culture, and sustainable development, we pull ideas into focus and sharpen the boundaries of a preliminary plan or concept. Collaborating with other disciplines, we develop strategies so that plans can respond to the market, attract financing, and execute. We help clients – private entities, government agencies, and non-profit organizations – assess feasibility, impacts, risks and trade-offs to make informed decisions.
We address our client’s challenges through creative thinking, structured and impartial analysis, and clear communications. As part of a comprehensive and multi-disciplinary company with global experience, we understand how multiple factors influence value and feasibility. It’s not just the market, but also project design, public policies and regulations, site conditions, mitigation requirements, development and financing costs, phasing and execution challenges. In short, our economic services help our clients make better plans and decisions to create value, manage risk, and improve their prospects for success.
