PGAV is a group of professionals skilled in all areas necessary to assist communities, businesses, and developers to address their needs.  The Group includes planners, architects, urban designers, financial analysts, development specialists, and economists.  PGAV has extensive experience in the public sector, working with community development agencies, planning departments, parks and recreation departments, redevelopment and housing authorities, and other federal, state, and local agencies.  In the private sector, PGAV has assisted numerous housing development organizations, various investors and commercial/industrial developers, major corporations, and financial institutions.

Experience in both the public and private sectors is an asset enabling us to formulate viable community/economic development plans and programs.  We are frequently called upon to assist the public and private sectors in determining how to combine public and private financing vehicles to close a cost gap to enable project development.  Our extensive background in development financing and public financing vehicles for assisting private development sets us apart from most other firms of our type.

Our commitment to our clients has resulted in many relationships that extend beyond a single assignment.  Because of our commitment to exceeding expectations, PGAV enjoys repeat business with clients and ongoing relationships that have, in many instances, extended over periods of time ranging from 10 to 30 years.  Solutions beyond expectations has been the hallmark of our name and the goal we have maintained throughout the years.
