Experience by Product-Type & Region
Shopping Malls & Retail Districts
Our work has included regional and community shopping malls, as well as neighborhood, grocery-anchored, big box power centers, lifestyle centers, and urban entertainment venues. We are involved with retail centers in unique settings, including mixed-use, redeveloped, and repurposed facilities.
In this era, the focus of our client work has been in exploring new roles for retail assets, effectively moving the traditional shopping mall ever closer to its destiny as part of everyone’s “location-based entertainment” definition. Some repurposing is possible with simple re-tenanting tactics while other situations require retrofitting and redevelopment (regeneration).
Hotels & Destination Resorts
From destination resorts, to landmark city hotels, to highway budget and economy properties, our client work has included the array of lodging product types. Recently, we have taken on client projects involving glamping and other unique stay accommodations.
Our work includes overall mixed-use and multi-use facilities, as well as particular components of such. We are well aware of the unique issues and opportunities that come when the project format is highly vertical.
Office & Industrial Buildings
Our client work has included general-purpose office buildings and parks, flex-tech industrial and purely industrial facilities, and corporate campuses. Over the years we have also gotten involved with tech incubator venues, and various new ideas for collaborative, “hotel-ed” and co-work space dating back to the early days of Fegen Suites (Los Angeles).
Our work with master-planned communities (MPC’s) has primarily included large-scale developments, many of which have included golf courses by name professional golf architects. Although our focus has been on feasibility, planning, and build-out issues, we have also been involved with acquisitions such as the purchase of Banning Lewis Ranch from the Resolution Trust Corp. on behalf of a Saudi-owned family office.
Our work with client residential projects has included affordable housing, subsidized housing, luxury homes and condominiums, and “resort residential” products. Some of the projects have been situated within master-planned community enclaves while others have been in urban and downtown settings.
Senior Housing Facilities
Our work with clients involved with senior facilities includes most of the venues included in integrated “continuum of care” communities, including independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, and hospital care facilities. We have an internal product development initiative exploring wellness and placemaking factors in design and operation.
C-Store Fueling Stations
Our work with client c-store/fuel station projects includes feasibility and design-construction management of particular facilities, as well as strategic planning matters related to such facilities in a master-planned community or portfolio setting. We are also involved with the selection of wholesale fuel suppliers and contract agreements related to convenience store gas stations.
Expert Witness & Litigation Support
SCP’s Donald Bredberg acts as an expert witness for real estate, hospitality, and entertainment development matters. Our staff has supported pre-litigation research and positioning efforts as client’s consider or react to legal perils.
North America Region
Our North American clients include public- and private-sector organizations throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. We include our Caribbean and Hawaiian clients in our Caribbean Rim and Pacific Rim client lists. As a company, we are also pursuing our own Owned & Managed projects in the region.
Tribal - Indigenous First Nations
Throughout the world, we work with indigenous tribal “first nations” which have unique sovereignty issues. In the U.S. this includes Native American pueblos and tribes, and indigenous Hawaiians. Outside the U.S., tribal nations come in many forms and we bring a sensitivity to the unique issues involved.
Caribbean Rim Region
Our Caribbean work has included client projects in Puerto Rico, The Bahamas, Jamaica, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. We have also supported client acquisition screening an analysis elsewhere in the Caribbean Sea region including Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic.
Pacific Rim Region
We work regularly with client projects in Pacific Rim countries, as well as with Pacific Rim companies that develop and operate outside their home base.
China - Hong Kong SAR
Our work in China has included client projects in Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Wuxi, Xi’an, and in the Hong Kong SAR. We have also assisted PRC-based clients with their U.S. and Sub-Saharan Africa business matters. Our experience throughout China dates to 1998 and our involvement in that year with Universal Studios Experience Beijing.
Middle East - North Africa
Our MENA region client work has included client matters in Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia. Our experience dates to 1989, when SCP’s Donald Bredberg assumed leadership of asset management and development for the real estate and hotels portfolio of Al Anwae and Al Tameer trading establishments of Riyadh and Jeddah, respectively.
Sub-Saharan Africa Region
Our work in Sub-Saharan Africa is primarily in Ghana and Nigeria, although we have supported clients elsewhere in Africa, including Uganda, South Africa, and Mozambique. As a company, we are also pursuing our own Owned & Managed projects in the region.
Our work in Greater Europe has primarily involved projects in France, Spain, and Montenegro, although our support of client acquisitions has also included the U.K. and Germany. SCP’s Donald Bredberg had his first European project involvement as a member of the project planning team for the Marne-la-Vallée new town development (Euro Disneyland) outside of Paris, and some years later was involved in real estate acquisition matters as part of helming real estate matters for the Saudi family office of Al Anwae and Al Tameer.
Public Sector Assignments
Our public sector work includes federal (national) government clients, and local and regional governments and agencies. Throughout the world, we work with indigenous tribal “first nations” which have unique sovereignty issues.
