HR&A is an industry leader in providing comprehensive real estate strategies to unlock value and create vibrant places.

For 40 years, the firm has created imaginative and practical solutions to a broad range of development challenges, including analysis of market and financial feasibility, planning, approvals, deal structuring, and financing of complex urban and large-scale developments.

HR&A takes a rigorous approach to understanding market potential and development feasibility.

Our understanding of market dynamics—from both a local and regional perspective—combined with analytical tools and data sources, allows us to provide the best possible service to our clients. We help our clients turn potential opportunities into financially feasible development programs and phasing strategies for a broad mix of uses, from traditional residential and retail development to niche market and other unique products.

HR&A provides a full suite of real estate development services.

We provide critical thinking for development projects, advice to public, private, not-for-profit, and institutional clients—including municipal governments, counties, quasi-public agencies, BIDs, large medical centers, universities, foundations, public development authorities, private owners, building portfolio managers, national developers, performing arts centers, and museums—to unlock potential and transform assets and places.

HR&A creates coordinated real estate strategies to unlock value in underutilized assets.

We help clients identify short, medium,  and long term actions that support organizational missions while creating value from their real estate portfolios. We recommend solutions that are flexible enough to respond to changing market conditions and evolution of our clients’ long term strategies.

HR&A structures innovative public-private development partnerships to unlock financing opportunities.

We help our clients identify, engage and collaborate with partners to fully recognize the value of real estate, share market risk, and fund important infrastructure investments in order to successfully advance projects. We understand how to leverage private sector motivations, public sector goals, and local, state and federal dollars.

HR&A has four decades of experience leading successful large-scale development projects.

We are able to navigate complex regulatory environments in order to achieve project implementation. We have managed multidisciplinary teams through the pre-master planning and master planning phases, from identifying and soliciting additional team members, to leading rezoning proposals, to engaging public sector officials and community leaders to attain development approvals.
