Market feasibility studies
Understand the economic viability of your development by looking at the local market forces at play
Prior to undertaking a new development or redevelopment it is critical to complete a proper evaluation of the local market conditions and demand drivers. A market feasibility study can include things like market profiling, market forecasting, demographic studies, economic studies, and market impact analysis.
It seeks to highlight any potential development pitfalls or opportunities before commencing the project so there is time to navigate or in some instances, pivot.
