In today’s more sophisticated real estate climate, only a team with proven experience can prepare strategies that meet new market requirements while overcoming the challenges brought by robust competition, urban redevelopment, and poorly positioned neighborhood districts. Catalyst offers a multidisciplinary team of planners, economists, urban designers, and redevelopment specialists focused on creating economic development and urban planning strategies that induce capital and market interest. Our award-winning efforts have included work with over 50 municipalities, transit agencies, housing authorities, lending institutions, and private land owners in recent years. This work includes market assessment, land use programming, master planning, urban design, code and guideline creation, marketing documents, horizontal cost analysis, TIF and sales tax revenue analysis, project financial analysis, implementation planning, and master development.
