Creating Your Vision




"Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now."

Alan Lakein, author

View Our Work Whether referring to time management or to feasibility studies, doing something about the future now is a good idea. And because of our experience, we know that understanding the feasibility of a project can save you — or cost you — millions. In fact, many of our clients learned the hard way that coming to us for a study before the land purchase makes good economic sense.

Our assessments consider numerous variables in a property, always with an eye toward creating a balance in environments. In addition, we identify the issues impacting the development potential and budget. We work with you to help you maximize the site yield from a piece of property based on reality, not best guesses or “pie-in-the-sky” visions. We have years of experience in zoning consultation as well as planning for historic community rehabilitation, redevelopment, and sustainable design. And we have experience in dealing with the political processes and codes that regulate development. We can play a vital role in turning your “not in my backyard” (NIMBY) objectors into some of your biggest supporters, by communicating your vision for the property – and the benefits it will bring to the neighborhood — in layman’s terms.

We understand the needs of developers, and our experience in master planning land and facilities is one of the reasons so many developers rely on us when it comes to planning.


Our areas of service include:

  • Master planning

  • Comprehensive community plans
