Planning Development

Property owners, developers and investors understand the complications of building a new property or rehabbing an existing one. Finding and getting control of the site, and determining its feasibility require knowledge, time and effort. When that is completed, a building must be designed, financing obtained, and the project must be built with the goal of quick lease-up and profitability. If you have been through this process, you know that this doesn’t happen by itself.

We call it “production capacity.” Tessier understands the critical importance of building a team with the capacity to locate, design, finance and build a property that an owner can be proud of and that functions well and profitably. In addition to handling location and acquisition, we offer programming, project coordination and construction expertise right down to the final punch list. We work closely with architects, land planners, municipal departments, contractors, lenders, and others to successfully produce the finished product.

Because our company also includes in-house brokerage, property services, property management and marketing divisions, we can provide the expanded turn-key services that ensures a project’s ultimate operational and financial success.

We invite you to explore a portfolio of development projects we’ve had the privilege of working on.
