Methods and Tools
ECONorthwest applies benefit-cost analysis to help decision makers compare different project and policy options.
Econometric & Statistical Analysis & Modeling
ECONorthwest can construct or deconstruct any econometric and statistical model or analysis.
ECONorthwest offers a broad range of expertise that is grounded in an understanding of markets and local economies. We develop targeted implementation strategies that identify specific steps and financial tools to fund infrastructure needs. For property owners approaching complex redevelopment projects, we craft prototypes and real world pro formas that bring development visions and economic realities together to produce viable, catalytic projects.
Our experienced team has worked on projects from inception to completion. We help our clients:
Evaluate and select catalyst redevelopment and infrastructure projects that can spur reinvestment in uncertain markets.
Plan for traditional, public-sector financing tools such as full faith and credit bonds, revenue bonds, impact and other fees, improvement districts, and tax increment financing.
Identify and implement appropriate alternative financing strategies, such as new market tax credits, EB-5 funding, vertical and affordable housing tax credits, and others.
Communicate financial and other trade-offs to councils, boards, partners, and neighbors.
Create comprehensive implementation plans that get results.
ECONorthwest has worked with many public and private sector clients to develop realistic, implementable strategies for redevelopment and infill projects. We have assisted:
The City of Hillsboro in developing a Downtown Framework Plan.
The City of Beaverton in developing a strategic Civic Plan, specifically focused on economic development, housing, and governance.
The Oregon Research Institute (ORI) in evaluating alternative sites for a new headquarters facility.
