Project Development

“Good cooperation between the parties makes or breaks the success of a building project.”

Strategic and flexible planning is a must in property development. Whether you are a local authority or a private owner who wants to buy or sell land, the Building and Property Development team of Kennedy Van der Laan has the ready knowledge that is essential to you.

We will assist you in all the relevant steps, such as: acquiring land, public-law topics (zoning plan, environment, building permits), the choice of the most appropriate form of cooperation, financing, and suitable solutions for realization, use and investment value.

The most appropriate form of cooperation

Choosing the most appropriate form of cooperation is important in property development. Should it be based on an agreement? Is it necessary to incorporate a separate legal entity? The Construction and Property Development team of Kennedy Van der Laan will make the best choice together with you.

We can support you in the development and realization of commercial real estate projects, such as (large-scale) residential areas, inner-city restructuring plans, and shopping malls.
