Land and Waterfront Development

Cost-effective waterfront development begins with a complete understanding of site conditions, natural resources and regulatory jurisdictions.

The TRC waterfront development team has followed this approach for more than 20 years on a wide variety of projects, from $7.5 million private waterfront redevelopments to federal infrastructure improvements.

TRC provides siting, design, regulatory strategy, permitting, and construction monitoring services for coastal and offshore projects in both urban and undeveloped settings. These waterfront developments range in size from mixed-use resort complexes and power plants to private docks and shoreline stabilization structures, and often include redevelopment of remediated sites.

Our particular areas of land development expertise focuses on urban waterfront development, mixed use commercial retail and residential development, community housing development and biopharma and hospital institutional development. TRC also has unique experience in coastal resort and marina development projects as well as golf course and recreational facilities development.
