A collaborative approach to repurposing vacant properties.


3 steps ​to a revitalization plan

Transform your underperforming property — whether it's a big box, downtown block, vacant building, or shopping mall.

Our streamlined system leads you to a guided plan in just 30 days from our site visit.
Streamlined, yes; cookie-cutter, no. Through deep analysis and stakeholder involvement, our team of experts base their recommendations on local conditions and budget availability.


This is the preparatory step. We get to know your community and situation.

We kick off your project with preliminary information gathering on markets and existing local conditions.



This is where it gets exciting. We come to your city, gather information from stakeholders and begin to formulate concepts right before your eyes.

Engagement builds as participants react to initial concept drawings and our site analysis.


We say "relaunch" because you are ready to embark on a transformation.

At the end of this phase, 30 days from our site visit, you will be ready to implement an action plan for revitalizing your property.
