Location Decisions Are Valuable

Manhattan Global Consulting Business Incentives Practice implements strategies for the development, expansion, consolidation or relocation of facilities. Your presence in a particular location has tremendous financial implications not only for your company but also for the local municipality and state. We create competition for that residency, unearthing financial opportunities through the procurement of local and state economic incentives. We identify, evaluate, and negotiate cash grants, infrastructure improvements, tax reductions, and job training. We evaluate local labor and area amenities to ensure that your business can be properly scaled. Our experience lives within all industries and sectors, with clients ranging in size from Global 2000 firms to individual owners, occupiers and developers.

Informed Site Selection

The early integration of project management into site selection helps qualify potential location while troubleshooting potential issues before they cause expense or delay.
