We represent developers, owners and tenants of mixed-use projects.  Our mission is to provide cost-effective, sophisticated and practical counsel to our clients so that a client’s project can transition from an idea to a reality.  Whether a client’s project is a multi-family building with ground floor retail, an abandoned brewery to be redeveloped into a lifestyle center, a planned community with a mix of residential, hotel, office and retail or the client is a potential tenant, our Team can help get the deal done.  Aspects of our Mixed-Use practice include the following:
