Charlotte Master Planning

At JWA, we believe that master planning is key for a commercial development that’s fully functional and viable for the long term.  We use a collaborative approach by working with community groups and leaders, architects, investors, and other parties at the beginning of the process to make long-term plans for maintenance, entitlements, and improvements while mitigating risks.

Site Selection

One of the most important elements of any successful real estate development is careful site selection.  Choosing a site requires consideration of many factors beyond your land requirements such as construction cost, demographics, accessibility, and government incentives.  Our comprehensive site selection process includes due diligence and community evaluation to produce a list of suitable sites for your development.

Charlotte Site Entitlements

Government approval and entitlement can be a complex process yet it’s crucial to move forward with any real estate development in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Entitlements can make or break your development by determining what you may and may not do with the site.  Our real estate developers will prepare and submit plans for the site, special use permits, and other documents to obtain the necessary approval for your project.
