City Cribs LLC
The development/repositioning of a building is perhaps one of the most challenging and rewarding areas of commercial real estate. City Cribs LLC’s development team is highly experienced and has deep relationships with real estate consultants, contractors and, government entities. These relationships allow City Cribs to successfully overcome the hurdles that arise while developing a facility, including: community concerns, permitting challenges, and the technical requirements of financing and building a sophisticated facility.
City Cribs utilizes a core set of guiding principles targeting investments with low volatility and high returns, resulting in strong performance throughout the economic cycle. We oversee the development process from the perspective of an owner and investor and conduct an in-depth market analysis of the risks and rewards and deployment of capital, to meet or exceed investment objectives. Additionally, we are the development manager for each of our projects, providing consultancy and advisory services, and optimizing our existing network of relationships and resources to maximize the potential return on investment.
Our team of seasoned construction professionals has technical expertise and knowledge across a wide range of property types. From inception to completion, our team is involved every step of the way: pre-construction planning, obtaining entitlements, budget development and execution, scheduling, contract procurement, and close-out. Using unique methods of extracting value while simultaneously providing the highest standards of quality are the hallmarks of our construction team’s process.
