Urbanscape Engaged for Consulting

Urbanscape Engaged for Consulting ORLANDO, FL - Urbanscape Properties, Inc. – a company providing a wide array of advisory services and development solutions – was recently commissioned by Regency Centers to complete a consulting assignment pertaining to one of Regency's mixed-use projects having a significant multifamily component. The primary purpose of the consulting assignment was to aid Regency in determining the feasibility of the multifamily portion of the project as well as to better understand the residual value of the land based on today's market conditions. Urbanscape assisted Regency with understanding the apartment rents that can be achieved in the market and the corresponding land value for the multifamily units.

The assignment entailed a thorough market tour of all relevant apartment and mixed-use comparable properties including new multifamily condominium projects; meetings with numerous City officials and apartment real estate professionals; an analysis of achievable apartment rents based upon the project's proposed characteristics and current market conditions; and an assessment of land value based upon rents, expenses, development costs, the going-in cap rate that institutional investors are requiring today and the anticipated exit cap rate at disposition. The end result was a comprehensive report that provided Regency with timely information as well as clear and concise conclusions and recommendations.

"I believe we provided Regency with the data they needed to complete their internal evaluation and offered helpful recommendations to them," stated President of Urbanscape, Jon Wood. "We enjoyed completing this task for Regency and are prepared to provide further assistance with implementing our recommendations should they need it."
