Our Professionals offer more than 100 years of combined experience in identifying premier locations and navigating the arduous contract negotiation and entitlement process. Our specialization is the resolution of complex development issues including zoning, land use, site design and engineering.

We provide real estate development services to the following sectors of the retail and hospitality markets:

  • Regional and National Convenience Stores
  • Fuel Centers
  • Automotive
  • Restaurants
  • Banking
  • Food and Drug Stores
  • General Retail
  • Healthcare
  • Limited Service Hotels

These Premier locations are offered to retailers pursuant to triple-net long-term ground leases or build-to-suit leases.

The Opportunity

We provide valuable benefits to retailers in various stages of their accelerated growth plans:

  • Access to a pipeline of premier locations
  • Offer “off-market” properties often overlooked by corporate real estate personnel or “broker-driven” models
  • Ability to ramp up expansion with minimal capital outlay for additional internal resources or soft costs
  • Maximize capital efficiencies by eliminating the significant investment in real estate lease execution to store opening
  • Identify and negotiate economic incentives with local municipalities to offset certain extraordinary development costs

  • Ground Lease and Build-To-Suit Programs
