Development Consulting

Overlook Associates will assist in property acquisition, including negotiations with the seller. Our ability to move quickly allows us to identify property in the best location to meet your needs and ensure that your purchase is at the best price. We will provide you with a feasibility analysis and guide you through all predevelopment work, including design, costing, zoning, and permitting. Our years of experience can help with the selection and management of a development team, including environmental, architecture, site planning, legal and construction firms. Lastly, we will arrange financing and help to obtain the most attractive grants and public subsidies.

Real Estate Planning

Overlook will oversee all aspects of real estate and preservation planning, while closely monitoring the overall construction to ensure compliance with cost estimates and regulatory requirements. Overlook will prepare and submit all applications with the appropriate local, state and federal agencies. We will negotiate for your project with the various regulatory agencies, including local historic commissions.

Adaptive Reuse

Our numerous successes in historic preservation speak directly to our knowledge and experience with adaptive reuse projects. We will assist in the location of adaptable buildings and ensure that each property is ideal for conversion. Additionally, we can provide ideas for permissible uses and analysis for the feasibility of each project.

Project Management

Overlook has the necessary experience for effective project management.  We will maintain relations with local governments, state and federal legislative delegations, and state and local agencies. We can oversee discussions with unions, foundations, community organizations, financial institutions, and contractors. Our management strategy, in addition to consulting on predevelopment work and tax credits, includes applications and negotiations with any appropriate local, state, or federal agencies as well as private financial institutions for subsidies and loans.

Community Relations

The challenge of achieving project feasibility often requires participation by public or other third party entities. Overlook Associates insures effective communication with local government, federal and state legislative delegations, unions, charitable foundations, and community development organizations. This active dialogue includes application and negotiation for any appropriate local, state or federal subsidies or loans. Overlook has supplemented project funding with awards under a variety of programs including CDAG, CDBG, Section 108, Workforce Training Funds, and Environmental Assessment funds. Overlook also provides project specific planning on behalf of communities that require overlay districts, feasibility studies, financing services and RFPs. Our experience insures community success in forging the link between project vision and execution.
