Studies examine existing land-use capacity and assess long-term land-use needs to identify realistic economic and land-use strategies. These studies also deal with land use policies for promoting more economically and environmentally sustainable development.

These services are geared towards both public agencies as well as private sector firms. Studies assess long-term needs and the economic viability of various land uses. Study outputs are used to create sound planning and investment decisions. Land Use Marketability Studies are often accompanied by Financial Feasibility Analyses and Economic Impact Assessments.

These services include a wide variety of financial and economic analysis and modeling for both public and private sector firms. The services may also include sensitivity analysis, highest and best use analysis, economic impact assessment, and lease versus own or build analysis.
