Why Work with Us
How can I get the right market information?
Colliers’ Development Management 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 and 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.
How can I reduce the burden of the development projects?
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.
How can I maximize returns on my development projects?
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.
How do I keep control of my investment and grow 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.
