Master Planning in Atlanta, GA

A master plan is a crucial element in developing a commercial property that is fully functional in the years to come.  We use a collaborative approach with community groups, architects, and other professionals to create a shared vision for the development that mitigates risk by considering essential elements like property improvements, maintenance, entitlements, and more.

Site Selection and Analysis

One of the most important aspects of any real estate development project is choosing the right site.  Land requirements are only the beginning in site selection; JWA prepares a thorough site analysis by considering everything from construction cost and incentives to legal concerns, accessibility, and demographics.  Our thorough site selection process creates a list of suitable sites that best fit your needs and builds the best long-term value.

Site Entitlements

Site entitlement and government approvals can be time-consuming and complicated yet they represent important steps in any commercial real estate development in Atlanta.  Land entitlements establish what can and cannot be done with a site; this means entitlement can make or break a project.  Our team of real estate developers prepare and submit site plans, special use permits, site plan approvals, and other documents to obtain approval for the development plans.
