Murow|CM’s extensive experience in successfully achieving project entitlements derives from over 40 years of working directly for Commercial/Industrial Development firms, Public & Private Residential Developers/Builders, and Land Acquisition/Development firms. Our experience allows us the ability to quickly navigate the process, define the correct course of action and align our consultant selection to those best suited for the project’s needs. Throughout the past 40 years we have aligned ourselves with a reliable and best in class team to execute the process in a timely and efficient manner to achieve the desired outcome.

It is because of this process, we feel we can not only deliver the project in a manner consistent with its highest and best use but also execute the process in a timely fashion that aligns with the financial goals of the project.
