From ground-up development to rehabilitation, renovation and the expansion of existing facilities, every project demands comprehensive management and risk mitigation to ensure success.

JM Zell manages every step of the process. We assemble the optimal team for each project and oversee the activities of all project-related vendors, thus ensuring a single source of seamless control and contact for the client during the entire project.

Our project management team facilitates the planning, coordination, and implementation processes, including the negotiation of all documentation.  We also maintain control of costs, quality and schedule. The client is involved, informed and its interests protected. Smooth and coordinated implementation assures that the project will be completed on time, on budget, and at the highest quality level.  Our unwavering attention to detail is what truly makes a difference to each client's bottom line.

JM Zell has provided project implementation services for more than $4 billion in asset value over more than two decades in 40 states and internationally.

JM Zell has strong operations planning capabilities to assist our clients where operations and facilities management decisions can have a critical impact on design and construction decisions.  We work in collaboration with client staff to assess the impact of capital projects on operating costs including staffing, utilities, energy efficiency, custodial services, repairs and maintenance, and grounds keeping. Understanding these impacts allows the operations planning team to recommend facility enhancements that can reduce operating costs in the short- and long-term.

About Our Development Services

655 K St NW (K Street).jpg

Owner-user development assignments employ virtually the full array of our collective expertise. Often such projects begin with a client uncertain about options for optimizing its real estate assets.  We evaluate the property’s or portfolio’s highest and best use potential — either for sale, lease, or redevelopment, or as a site for a completely new, ground-up development. We strive to understand the intrinsic value of the property to ensure maximum value for the client. We may also identify and counsel on site selection and acquisition and provide our in-house expertise for obtaining entitlements and rezoning approvals.

JM Zell can also act as fee-based developer for our clients, employing all of our consulting and project management skills to ensure an on time, on budget project.
