Our Services: from Vision to Implementation

SB Friedman works closely with municipal, institutional and corporate clients to evaluate development potential; project financial feasibility; identify innovative public-private development solutions; and prepare implementable development strategies.

Public-private financing partnerships are an essential part of most major efforts to foster high-quality economic development, community revitalization and infrastructure projects. SB Friedman offers a unique, rigorous approach to facilitation, evaluation and structuring of these partnerships, whether on behalf of government, private or institutional/nonprofit clients.

Real estate economics are often the core factors that determine whether and how a project will “work.” This includes assessment of the market potential for a given development program through review of market demand and competitive supply. Real estate financial analysis then builds on this foundation by analyzing whether the project will be financially feasible, as proposed.
