ABOUT US | HR&A Advisors is a top real estate and economic development consulting firm. We provide strategic advisory services for clients in the public, private, and non-profit sectors to solve some of the most complex challenges of urban development. Our projects range in scale from buildings to neighborhoods, public parks to infrastructure systems, and from program design and management to public policy development and implementation. We care about improving the quality of urban life, and we are increasingly focused on the challenges of inclusivity, infrastructure, and technological innovation in cities as we advance public-private development projects that improve economic, environmental, and social outcomes.

We are former public servants, real estate developers, urban planners, city officials, activists, and economists. We are unique in our ability to create value by integrating disparate disciplines for our clients, and we often lead teams with engineers, architects, lawyers, community organizers, and other specialists. We are a tight-knit team that works across the country and around the world from offices in New York, Dallas, Los Angeles, Raleigh, and Washington, DC.
