Our Memphis Commercial Real Estate Development Services

Jim Wilson & Associates is a full-service commercial real estate development company serving Memphis with everything from site selection to master planning.

Site Selection

One of the most crucial elements to any successful commercial real estate development is a rigorous site selection process. We understand that location can determine the potential for a development, affect construction and operating costs, and even determine whether development is feasible. We offer experienced site selection services to help you choose an appropriate site based on factors such as soil conditions, zoning, incentives, demographics, traffic patterns, availability of raw materials, and construction costs.

Site Entitlement

As with site selection, the entitlement process can derail a development project before it even begins. If you aren’t prepared, you may struggle to move forward with your project and face costly delays — if your project can even begin. JWA offers entitlement assistance with use permits, road approvals, document submission, rezoning, and other concerns to get your project approved and avoid delays in your timeline.

Master Planning

The master plan is the long-term vision for a commercial real estate development in Memphis. Strong master planning can help you create improvements that add value, highlight land uses, and assist with decisions about site selection, sustainability, and long-term viability.

We have developed, managed, and owned millions of square feet of commercial and residential real estate throughout the South to provide sound financial consultation.
