For too long, legislation has been adopted and rules and procedures have been promulgated on the City, County and State level without the input of the neighborhood building owner and developer. As a result, laws have been passed that have proven detrimental and costly not only to building owners and developers, but to building managers, tenants and society at large.

We find opportunities to gather owners, developers and their potential counterparts to keep them abreast of new legislation, trends. and partnerships on the horizon.
Strategy & Planning
