> property repositioning : We find great pride in taking each property through the appropriate due diligence filters to achieve the highest and best use analysis and value strategy for each client. Our extensive planning and real estate experience reveal each layer of a site to assist clients in determing how to move forward with development, land hold or a reversion of a site. We've analyzed and repositioned project types valued between $2M to $1.0B in assests for clients. Our experience gives us the ability to understand the value and financial ammunition needed for individual properties, neighborhood analysis, and overall real estate industry standards. Whether through the rezoning of a site to its highest and best use through densification, development strategies, value add, purchase/sell and full feasibility reporting - StackLot's capacity is broad which gives a great advantage.
> fusing physical + tech : It is only natural that as society progresses in the design of our physical and digital landscapes their must come a merging of the two systems. We have seen this increase over the past few years through the explosion of geo-spatial, location based and social applications. There is a longing to connect the online with the offline.
Through the merging of StackLot's extensive experience in the design of physical space and digital experience, we've created multiple concept applications; dealing specifically in the geo-spatial and location based hemispheres. Goals are that these applications will not only create a pure digital design, but will begin to reciprocate design back into the physical realm thus creating a symbiotic relationship between the two.
