Real Estate Strategy and Implementation

The presence of non-productive real estate assets negatively affects the livability of communities and their development potential, depriving the community and its residents of economic resources to support community services. At the same time, real estate development and revitalization strategies must be based on the market and economic realities affecting the community, consumers and developers.

CED-Solutions will work with you to identify potential opportunities for re-development and formulate plans to maximize the economic and community potential of vacant and/or disinvested, industrial, commercial and retail properties. We assess current market conditions in light of core economic development principles and best practices in order to propose recommendations that support a community’s or organization’s objectives. We create viable development opportunities that can serve as a catalyst to attract new investment.

CED-Solutions can also provide the critical support necessary to turn development plans into reality, especially for riskier projects in distressed areas. We have hands on experience in managing pre-development activities (land assemblage, demolition, environmental remediation and installation of infrastructure); overseeing the design and construction process; and identifying funding mechanisms and the appropriate level of incentives to move a project forward. We will work with you to provide the right level of support for your organization or community.
