About Us

Who We Are

SB Friedman Development Advisors, LLC (SB Friedman) provides analytical, strategic and financial consulting services in support of complex, high-impact development projects. We frequently assist in structuring and negotiating the public-private partnerships that are essential to successfully implementing these projects. We serve a full range of clients in the public, private and nonprofit/institutional sectors.

What We Do

SB Friedman is an interdisciplinary firm—a feature we believe is essential to providing high-quality consulting services in our field. As noted in our tagline: Vision | Economics | Strategy | Finance | Implementation, we provide a unique range of capabilities under one roof that support the life cycle of projects from initial conception to construction. By bringing expertise in real estate economics and financial feasibility, we help our clients engage in “fact-based visioning” processes that lead to successful development outcomes. Our understanding of planning/policy considerations shapes our recommendations regarding development financing and strategy.

Why We Do It

Our mission is to help our clients create equitable, resilient and well-designed communities through the practice of real estate economics, development finance and urban planning.

We believe development should be a tool and a platform to better the lives of current and future community residents, with particular emphasis on those with less access to opportunity.

To support these values, we plan and help finance transit-oriented communities, neighborhood nodes, attractive and affordable housing, mobility infrastructure, and facilities providing vital services, healthy foods and gainful employment.
