Conversions Strategies in Development Projects

Conversion Strategies

A dynamic and volatile market can often adversely effect developments being built for specific purposes e.g. hotel and restaurant properties may find themselves economically unviable due to contextual turnovers.

Often such instances may be temporary setbacks but what if they had longlasting change in consumer behaviour? Possibly reducing footfalls in malls or occupancy of hotels of certain types or certain regions? Such instances are not to be taken lightly and it is best to plan for various scenarios to minimize dilution of value of the asset.

While a project under development offers a wider range of conversion strategies, a small miscalculation can lead to piling up of avoidable costs and time loss in case further conversion has to be done on the earlier conversion strategy.  It becomes imperative that a thorough examination and evaluation of technical, regulatory, financial and other development specific aspects are taken into consideration for forming a strategy to optimize return / yield on the project.
