Development, Investment & Advisory Services

Companies, retailers and residents are increasingly returning to the urban core to capture the value of transit access, high densities of human capital, walkability and social/recreational opportunities.  Creating real estate solutions to meet the growing demand in these markets requires a set of unique skills and tools.  Environmental considerations, public outreach, historic and adaptive re-use, and the integration of local, state and federal tax credit/subsidy programs are just a few of the challenges facing any urban development project.


With more than a decade of experience delivering real estate projects in cities across the US and internationally, BDP's principals have the skills, relationships and know-how to deliver transformative projects that meet the needs of the most discriminating end users.
