Services

STRATEGIC CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT

We develop strategies and usability concepts for real estate and the private public sector. These concepts range from retail mix strategies, F&B and hospitality concepts, design and all the way to defining proportions, sectors and values. We create efficient retail mixes, analyse brands, source unique and successful entrepreneurs, build strategic partnerships, negotiate advantageous deals and create unique stories for our clients.
Our concepts and strategies are backed by strong research, experience with global cultures and mentalities, access to international networks and more than 20 years of professional experience. We bring spaces and places to life.

Mixed-use

We research, strategise, conceptualise, execute and to some degree operate mixed-use developments — be it co-Living, co-housing, or co-working alongside retail or entertainment environments. Based on city analysis, research and global observation we create mixed-use spaces that become strong brands and profitable real estate. We develop commercial, creative and cultural strategies that will add value to the property while making it a must destination for tenants, communities, artists, companies and visitors alike.

PUBLIC BIDDING

Public bidding processes require knowledge of local rules and regulations, political networks as well as governmental and municipal strategies. They require lobbying skills and understanding of urban developments. We develop concepts and strategies for bidding processes that are attractive for both — the investor and the city alike, in order to increase the possibility of success.

HOSPITALITY AND RESIDENTIAL

We develop concepts for the hospitality and/ or residential sector, be it hotels, hostels, high-end apartments, lofts or members-clubs. We support the process from defining the right location to design strategy, choosing architectural firms or going through licensing processes.

INVESTMENT STRATEGY

We develop investment strategies and source on and off-market investment opportunities based on current market values and city development trends. We study real estate opportunities not only from the price per square metre, however also in respect towards city growth and tendencies. We study projects from usability, legal, tax, rehabilitation and growth perspectives. We understand architecture, speak design and calculate operations.
