Incentive Analysis and Negotiation

Successful companies recognize that real estate is a critical strategic resource.  Occupancy costs, often one of a company’s largest expense items, present value adding opportunities and the potential for liability issues. Cushman & Wakefield/Commercial Advisors’ Incentives Group provides our clients with advisory services in regards to tax and economic development incentives available from local and state jurisdictions. Such incentives can reduce occupancy costs, drive employment growth and provide offsets for capital expenditures.
