DUE DILIGENCE / FEASIBILITY ANALYSISPotential obstacles encountered in the early stages of development can be difficult. At Corbett Land Strategies, we address these issues early to ensure your plans move forward as seamlessly as possible. Identifying obstacles early can save time and money from initial stages through to approvals. Our firm offers comprehensive due diligence reports for clients wishing to develop/redevelop property for a wide range of land uses to ensure the establishment of a sound basis for decision-making. A full investigation of factors such as land use compatibility, conformity with local and senior level planning documents and legislation, environmental/infrastructure implications, market analysis, and community and public consultant requirements, will be fully considered in an integrated fashion. Feasibility reviews are concluded with a risk and strategic opportunity assessment together with solution-focused recommendations.
URBAN AND COMMUNITY PLANNINGWe understand the interrelationships between land use, transportation, urban design, and economic development. Communities have their own special history, people, geography, and challenges. Community Master Planning and Design is an essential part of our service portfolio to private sector clients and developer landowner groups. Successful land development begins with establishing integrated community plans that consider land use/community with transportation, environmental, infrastructure, and community needs. The goal is to maximize development value for our clients while meeting the critical planning objectives and mandates of municipal and approval authorities. Our team is rapidly being recognized for our ability to provide a forum where stakeholders, landowners, and communities are engaged. The execution of our community engagement participation creates communities that are formed through strategic engagement.
