Time is a currency that matters. Delays in obtaining regulatory approvals can result in significantly increased costs, or a competitor securing a stronger position in the marketplace or lost economic development opportunities. The Wave Point Consulting logistics real estate practice helps industrial infrastructure developers, economic development agencies, and land use planners assess opportunities, mitigate project risk and reduce the time to market.
We apply best practices and in-depth knowledge of the policies and regulations for transportation, logistics and industrial land use projects. Examining the context and necessary linkages between transport modes and the surrounding community, target markets, ensures that the factors affecting the highest and best use of property are incorporated into business strategies to help ensure long-term sustainability.
Our logistics real estate team includes a mix of industry experts with extensive commercial, operational, financial and regulatory experience in multimodal transportation, supply chain, industrial and employment land projects.
