Beginning at the conceptual design phase, CRC assists architects, developers, and owners with design and development planning, preparing marketing analyses of geographic areas to determine appropriate target markets, average rents, vacancy rates, pipeline projects, and desired amenities. CRC also assists in determining effective unit mixes, floor plans, and site layouts, alongside development of lease-up schedules, marketing and FF&E budgets, and revenue and expense projections.
