Real Estate Development and Consulting
Welcome to Calston. We provide specialized development and consulting services primarily focused on unique redevelopment opportunities.
Our principals have development and consulting experience spanning the southern United States including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands (US), and Virginia.
Our focus is centered around affordable housing as well as older urban core in-fill redevelopment efforts of all types utilizing Public Private Partnerships “PPP” with municipalities, non-profits and, Public Housing Authorities (PHA) .
Much of our development experience revolves around challenging, non-traditional projects requiring the use of various tax incentive financing including:
Tax Increment Financing (TIF)
Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC)
New Market Tax Credits (NMTC)
Historic Tax Credits (HTC)
Enterprise Zones (EZ)
HOPE VI/Choice Neighborhoods
*Opportunity Zones were created as part Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. We are actively working with other stakeholders to help with implementation of this new program.
We work as consultants on a retainer type basis as well as traditional at-risk developers with strategic co-development partners including:
Project Structuring and Conceptualization
Social Impact Analysis and Coordination
Analyzing Governmental Regulations
Financing Application Preparation
Financial and Development Due Diligence
Development Project Management
Every neighborhood is different and thus, every development requires a comprehensive analysis of the needs of the community before a development plan can be finalized. Calston has affiliated and unaffiliated strategic partnerships available to assist with all facets of the development process depending on location, size, structure, and timing.
