PWGC has developed a well-honed approach to the assessing and proposing solutions for environmentally challenged properties, unlocking hidden value and enabling redevelopment of undervalued properties. Given its importance, real estate represents one of PWGC’s largest market segments and the division is led by some of the firm’s senior and most experienced members. PWGC has performed a variety of site assessments ranging in size from small commercial sites to area-wide projects for the public and private sector including for financial institutions, environmental attorneys, municipalities and economic development agencies.
PWGC recognizes that every development project has its own identity and that each environmental site assessment is unique, depending on client objectives, site conditions and regulatory environments. Our approach to each site assessment is based on extensive discourse with the client to ensure that an appropriate remedial plan is drafted that will meet their objectives.
PWGC’s know-how has enabled it to work with some of New York City’s most influential developers including RXR, J.D. Carlisle Development Corp., The Witkoff Group and The Hudson Cos. to name a few. Working with a variety of clients including developers, attorneys, insurance companies, architects and community associations, PWGC provides expertise on environmental impact studies, indoor air quality, permitting, site development issues, and construction administration.
Due to PWGC’s regulatory background, we are able to more closely define specific environmental concerns and in turn avoid unexpected delays and unnecessary costs.
