Reuse Assessments

Vantage Point Economic and Transportation Development Strategies, LLC and its senior staff have completed reuse assessments of industrial properties that cover both existing facilities and raw land.  Our professionals have been nationally active in examining older industrial structures for their reuse potential. Structures have included steel mills, automobile manufacturing facilities and shipyard/port terminals formerly used by well-recognized U.S. industries.

Industrial land reuse assessments have also been undertaken on behalf of public entities. These assessments have covered conversion of waterfront property into a multi-use project which includes industrial uses.

Areawide Industrial Analyses

In addition to these industrially related efforts, we have provided numerous public entities with economic studies and strategies geared to understanding area-wide industrial/economic development potentials.  These assessments often are conducted citywide, along transportation corridors, along river basins and/or in multi-county portions of states. The assessments typically include completing educational and marketing strategies, recommending linkages to existing businesses, retraining employees laid off from business and industry, and the like.
