We have the hands-on expertise to transform development concepts into high-quality, collaborative realities, specializing in ambitious, site-specific projects that redefine vibrant communities.
ENTITLEMENT PLANNING & EXECUTION
Gafcon Development’s approach for a ground-up development project is to process the project through feasibility, technical studies, planning, financial structuring, design, entitlements, permitting, construction, commissioning, and closeout. We will develop a collaborative planning and entitlement process within the economic requirements of a project to provide the means to successfully navigate land use.
FINANCIAL FEASIBILITY STUDIES AND PRO FORMA
Gafcon Development assists our clients with determining whether the benefits of a completed development will outweigh the initial costs invested. We compare the potential of the development to the land purchase and acquisition costs, permit and review costs, construction costs, insurances, closing costs, and more. We focus our due diligence on compiling, organizing, and communicating the possibilities of a current site while taking into consideration current goals and future vision.
REAL ESTATE ADVISORY
Gafcon Development collaborates with leading economists, industry experts, and seasoned financial professionals to construct an accurate account of current and future market forces to inform and guide project development. In a constantly changing market, we provide you with the insight needed to thoughtfully vision, plan, pivot, or adjust projections in real time.
FINANCIAL STRUCTURING
Gafcon Development’s development team defines the financial framework for the development to include financial performance, funding requirements, funding opportunities, and financial strategies to execute the vision of the project. We rely on the extensive experience of our in-house experts to research and provide an outline of all available funding source. Our team has decades of experience collaborating with public and private partners to identify, size, and creatively finance multi-phased plans.
PUBLIC AGENCY NEGOTIATIONS
Whether at the local, federal, or international level, working with governing agencies is critical for obtaining regulatory clearance necessary to construct the development. Gafcon Development identifies improvements that fall under the authority of specific agencies to create a timeline to ensure compliance.
PLANNING/PROGRAMMING
Gafcon Development has worked with owners and developers in multiple markets and across all levels of service. Our team has access to current market data and development metrics to solve challenges proactively. We use this data and our substantial public and private development experience to inform recommendations as we iterate through the various phases of any project.
