Cofield Properties, Inc. and its affiliate entities have been active in developing, both for its own account and for others, commercial, industrial, residential and mixed-use developments in the New England and Mid-Atlantic states since the mid-1980s. As a result of the firm’s extensive real estate development experience, it enjoys an outstanding reputation for its attention to planning, conservation, and historic preservation issues. This success has enabled Cofield to build an impressive record in concept design and site acquisition. Its experience in obtaining planning board, conservation board, and zoning board approvals is invaluable, as is its experience in financing, construction management, and real estate marketing.
The real estate development firm is led, even inspired, by the desire to do good work. With each project, Cofield establishes a talented development team that is creative and imaginative. At times, the challenge is to reclaim substandard properties, transforming them into exceptional properties. Along the way, Cofield’s good work creates substantial value. At other times, the firm identifies well-located underutilized properties, determines the highest and best use, and creates spectacular properties. Again, along the way, Cofield’s good work creates substantial value. In either case, the end product yields very attractive returns for its investors and the firm is well rewarded for its good work. From the firm’s perspective, a lasting image of an extraordinary property is a worthy goal. Simply stated, we have fun doing good work.
Cofield began working collaboratively with real estate and development professionals in 1994. This work has included real estate development and project management work throughout New England and in metropolitan centers along the east coast. Since 2000, Cofield has partnered with other firms to pursue and wininfrastructure and public private partnership (P3) projects for schools and other public structures, hotels, mixed-use developments, and transit-oriented developments. Most often, these projects are pursued through Cofield’s development affiliate, Boston Development Collaborative, LLC (“The Collaborative”).Importantly, these projects are generally high-profile projectsdriven by market demand and the projects are credited with substantial public support. The Collaborative has worked with national and global real estate firms, architects, construction firms, engineering firms, investment banking firms, and leading law firms with dedicated legal expertise in issues related to complicated development projects.
