Understanding the realities of development and the tools available unlocks potential. We have experience helping owners navigate:
We will work with you to identify what funding sources are available, match

numbers based on market rents, and determine what the return on investment
potential is for your project concept.

With expertise in both Federal and State Historic Tax Credit Applications, we can help you navigate the requirements and application process. We’ve successfully helped complete nominations and secure designation on the National Register of Historic Places and are powerful advocates at the State and Federal levels for legislation that supports these critical development tools.
Networking and Connections
We have spent decades building relationships in this industry and we connect
investors, lenders, and tenants to create the partnerships that make development projects work.
