SB Friedman develops and assists in implementing strategies to revitalize communities, downtowns, corridors and sites. We have established a reputation for producing ambitious, but achievable strategies that are rooted in market reality, financial feasibility and effective implementation. Our place-based strategies are a synthesis of community goals, economic potential, evolving demographic and development trends, physical and market constraints, and proven planning principles. Our experience working on development projects from the vision to the deal allows us to function as a “proxy developer,” guiding a data-driven and objective planning process that results in a “believable fiction” of future land uses. Our work has resulted in award-winning redevelopment projects that have proven catalytic to their communities.
Our firm has been recognized as one of the few consulting companies that truly understand both the public and private perspectives on development issues.
