Combined with our integrated and multidisciplinary service provision for (re)development in the field of operations and financing, this makes us the largest urban development consultant in The Netherlands.
Our team consists of analytical, driven and innovative strategic advisors. When supporting an urban development project or preparing the financial business case, we look at the specific needs and interests of the client in order to put together an optimal team.

Urban development and project development

Deloitte Real Estate advise and manage the development process from start to finish, by combining process knowledge and experience with our financial, legal, tax and organizational expertise. Allocating (development) risks, drawing up business cases and development scenarios, structuring the development process, calculating the exploitation of assets and optimally coordinating the interests of stakeholders (such as the municipality, housing corporation and developer) often make a joint approach to (re)development essential.


Tendering takes many forms. To achieve successful transactions, it is important to know how to connect parties and to be able to translate this connection into feasible business cases. Deloitte Real Estate formulates clear tender documents that match the type of (project) development and the needs of both sides.


Innovations and changes in the area of mobility have an impact on the various components of the spatial domain. Smart Mobility is changing infrastructure needs that must be anticipated by both public authorities and private parties. Deloitte Real Estate is charting the (financial) consequences of these changes, focusing on their impact on policy choices regarding parking, inner-city urban development, energy needs, and program management.

Alliances & Partnerships

Changing legislation and regulations, current economic conditions or the need to look after business interests more decisively may necessitate far-reaching cooperation or even a merger. Deloitte Real Estate can support you in choosing which parties you should work with and how to form such a partnership or merger process. We also act as quartermaster in the resolution of disputes between current cooperation partners.


Many construction projects and land operations are less resistant to adversity than initially assumed and must be made more dynamic in order to remain future-proof. We help you identify the risks, determine their magnitude and map out the measures you need to take to mitigate them. Does the current set-up enable you to achieve your strategic goals or do they need to be adjusted?

Decision-making is facilitated optimally by providing transparent insight into direct, indirect and related effects of planned policy. To achieve this, models are made of the possible (economic) impact.
