For 30 years, HR&A's real estate practice has built a distinguished track record solving complex real estate and economic development challenges.


Real Estate & Economic

We analyze, advise and act to help clients achieve practical solutions to complex analytic, financial and management issues. We help our clients succeed because we:

Imagine the possibilities for growth and restoration inherent in, but often hidden in, troubled downtowns, transitional communities, waterfronts, obsolete land uses, and a host of other areas. We create visionary solutions.

Maintain the discipline of pragmatism, recommending only what we believe to be realistically possible based on a rigorous assessment of the conditions affecting our clients. We communicate these assessments with honesty to our clients and to all of their audiences.

Partner with our clients to immerse ourselves in the communities and organizations in which they live and work. We offer client-specific diagnoses and recommendations — not one-size-fits-all approaches.

Integrate market research, analysis and policy, providing clients with a seamless process that is both practical and innovative.

Our three primary practice areas are:

Our approach to project management is central to the firm’s success. HR&A partners are continuously and substantively involved in the execution of every project. We believe that an engaged, experienced management style — led by senior professionals — brings maximum value to our clients. It also provides us the most professional satisfaction. We routinely work with teams including experts from real estate, urban design, engineering, and legal fields.

HR&A has corporate offices in New York, Northern California, Los Angeles, Portland, OR, and Washington, D.C., providing a national presence that allows us to effectively serve clients across the country. From Baltimore to Brooklyn and Miami to Memphis, our passion and dedication to America’s communities is evident in our work. Our approach has allowed hundreds of public and private clients to transform real estate and economic development concepts first into actionable plans, then into job-producing, community-strengthening assets.
