Our Process

We assemble the right team with the right information.

Colliers’ Development Advisory team has access to proprietary databases and information sources, the back stories, and insights into market demand to advise you on the best use for your site.

We procure the right team of consultants in a competitive way.

We lead them through the entire process, determining the right direction for the project at every step, and steering the project and the team towards it, and ultimately, the end goal.

We provide the advice you need to enable you to keep control of your investment – and build on it

If you’re looking for the right piece of real estate with an acceptable amount of risk and an attractive upside, we can help you find it.

With development expertise in our DNA and countless development projects under our belt – not only in Canada but globally – you can count on us to effectively lead your project so you can focus on your primary business.

We provide an ownership mindset without taking an equity stake. Unlike partnering with a developer, when you work with us our Development Management team brings all the critical capabilities, capacity and experience to bear on your project – but you retain control. And when we’re finished, you get to keep all of the increased value that our team has created for your site. We work for a fee; you keep the profit.

We take on the complexity and burden of the development process

We specialize in navigating and negotiating through the complex development process to bring certainty to your project and get it shovel- ready as efficiently as possible.

We work with all stakeholders to achieve both engagement and alignment, and to resolve any issues that could cause your project to stall or cease, or your costs to increase – all while ensuring you extract and maximize value from your investment based on strategy and fact versus chance and hearsay.

We ensure your project achieves peak performance

Once you proceed with development, we use our domain expertise
– from multifamily projects, to retail builds, to office and industrial facilities – and our comprehensive data to help ensure your project performs optimally.

Count on our market insights, strategic advice and development expertise to help you build on your investment and maximize your returns. Let us help you turn your development idea into an income-producing property.
