Real Estate Strategy Consultancy

We live in an era that has seen shopping devolve into a mere digital transaction. But I believe - and the research supports my view - that there is a bright future for physical marketplaces that offer dynamic, evocative and engaging experiences that cannot be achieved online. People are social by nature, and they gravitate to places and experiences that foster real community. The future: places that reward visitors with meaning and value and the simple pleasure of gathering together.close quote

Real Estate Market Research

Real Estate
Market Research

We provide comprehensive real estate market research studies that provide data to define and quantify trade areas, visitor markets, consumer lifestyles, and buying characteristics.

With this data, we identify ideal target markets, consumer segments, and unmet needs. And this, in turn, allows us to determine sustainable project size, land use, merchant variety, attendance models, per cap expenditures, average daily rates, and sales and rent potential of the project. Our research concludes with precisely tailored strategy vividly presented in words, charts, diagrams, illustrations, and plans.

Real Estate Concept Development

We create the underlying concept that becomes that foundation for a community-redefining real estate development. Our objective is greater market share; increased attendance; accelerated lease-up; and higher rental, room, and admission rates, leading to higher property value. The core concept is unique, creative, and innovative. But most of all, it contributes to a better community.

Planning

We develop fit models, space utilization plans, and detailed cost and income projections that are modeled, filtered, and further refined under a variety of scenarios, resulting in a pragmatic strategy. This work guides the storytelling, place-making, and cultural expression - which, in turn, provide a blueprint for our creative design.

We are not academic theorists observing from the outside. We are, instead, pragmatic realists. Forward-looking. Market- and transaction-driven. We know from long experience what works and what doesn't. Our approach is predictive and based on thorough research. Consequently, we develop award-winning and highly actionable branding strategies to drive marketing, business recruitment, leasing - and enduring success.
