Development & Project Management

Quaker Lane has extensive expertise across all phases of development. We aid property owners in identifying the highest and best use for their site, be it ground-up development or adaptive-reuse/renovation. Quaker Lane is particularly effective in situations with complex community dynamics and entitlement processes. After receiving entitlements, Quaker Lane can manage the design process from consultant selection through review and feedback on construction drawings. As construction work gets started, we are equipped to manage vendor contracts, billing, and construction administration, and owners benefit from our rigorous quality controls. Throughout the entire process, we track deadlines and budget against actuals so that clients have full transparency into the project’s performance.

Capital Markets Advisory

Based on decades of transaction experience, Quaker Lane can evaluate in-place capital structures and advise ownership to alternative capitalization and/or disposition strategies tailored to our clients’ objectives. Our longstanding relationships with market participants and allocators allows us to provide quick feedback to owners about prospective strategies. Quaker Lane can source equity, debt, and preferred equity/mezzanine debt, giving owners access to numerous sources of capital for each project. We can also conduct hold/sell analyses and connect owners with prospective buyers, later supporting due diligence and legal efforts.
