Real Estate Development

ECB develops a wide variety of projects for its own account, in partnership with landowners, or on behalf of its clients. Our award winning projects include new construction and historic rehabilitation of office/commercial, retail, lodging, affordable and market rate housing, and mixed uses. They feature complex financing structures, including the use of tax credits: Historic, Low Income Housing, and New Markets. We specialize in transformative, urban infill projects that achieve the highest levels of sustainable design and construction and become integral to the communities they serve.

Finance Consulting

ECB is recognized for its expertise in securing and structuring New Markets Tax Credit and Historic Tax Credit financing, seamlessly integrated with other funding sources for nonprofit organizations and private developers. We work on behalf of our clients to manage all aspects of the tax credit financing process from initial feasibility through securing NMTC allocation, investor negotiations, documentation, and closing.
