Economic development/ urban planning services

Our Economic Development and Urban Planning Services Consultants are ready to advise you on housing development, community development, sports complex development, and entertainment complex development with a focus on Public/Private partnerships. Our services include alternative financing, real estate development, advisory services to state and local government, as well as, to private sector companies interested in developing in municipalities and engaging in equity participation.

Conscientious economic development planning focuses on key benchmarks including access to customers/markets; concentration of businesses and services; real estate and infrastructure; labor market conditions; municipal permit processes; community quality of life; business incentives; local tax rates; site related amenities and access to local information.

Beyond advising clients during the planning process, the Robert Bobb Group also provides on-the-ground services as implementers—including alternative financing for commercial/residential retail development, waterfront development, entertainment complexes, sports stadiums and other transformation projects.

Our nationally recognized work with school systems includes working with municipalities to build new schools and also to renovate existing schools with the belief that education investment should be coordinated with neighborhood economic development. A school can serve as a catalyst or anchor to rebuilding a neighborhood.

We can also be equity participants for municipal clients as well as for private clients who want to do business with municipalities. We participate in joint ventures in which we tie economic development and education development/construction together.
