RCLCO staff work at the property level on a daily basis, providing advice on a wide range of property types, geographic markets and analyses that vary from strategic positioning of new development to identifying optimal redevelopment strategies and assisting urban planners in maximizing land usage, among many other projects.

In addition, we provide periodic reports and customized solutions that can assist non-U.S. investors in understanding the U.S. markets.
Private investors, developers, and public officials need clear optics on how metropolitan areas are likely to grow and evolve over time as context for critical decisions.

*RCLCO’s MetroLogic™ provides a much improved framework for making real estate investment and development decisions, relative to conventional market research methods.
