Studies of Best Use

What type of use is best for an asset from an economic point of view in the current zoning and/or with a minimum of new rights? We go beyond the typical report, analyzing the costs and benefits of various occupancy strategies, taking into account market trends, legal restrictions, and community environment.

Our analysis determines the maximum development potential of a property in the following phases:

- Asset analysis: we evaluate the location, configuration and characteristics of the property, as well as the urban development possibilities, respective framework and nature of nearby adjacent properties;
- Analysis of rights and conditions: we evaluate land use and the framing of the property with municipal laws and regulations; this process also involves the evaluation of urban plans including elements of the Municipal Master Plan, Detail Plans/Urbanization, among others;
- Market analysis: we use the most recent market data to forecast occupancy rates and rental value, sales pace, and other revenue projections necessary for the business plan;
- Asset valuation using methods approved by the CMVM;
- The sum of the above processes allows us to obtain the quantitative and qualitative information that we need to make a recommendation of a certain type and scale of project.
