Connecting owner objectives with market realities, through expert guidance on facility programming, market positioning, brand/operator selection, and more.

Vieste is well established sports complex, entertainment venue, and mixed use economic development advisor with a proven track record taking projects from inception to opening and continuing operations. Our services span the entire process, from initial project conception to the detailed analysis and recommendations surrounding facility programming, market positioning, architect and design team engagement, operator and brand selection, contract negotiation and more.

We can advise on all or select phases of the development process, for both new construction and major scale re-development/adaptive reuse.

What makes our team unique is our ability to connect owner objectives with operating realities. We understand what goes into an optimal program to ensure it meets the market and supports the investment. We also bring a perspective that bridges the architectural and design “vision” with what is financially feasible and optimal from an operational standpoint, including functionality, flow, materials, sports equipment and other key elements to support market positioning and owner objectives.

We anticipate issues, providing ownership with an opportunity to proactively weigh in and make informed decisions throughout the process, rather than react to issues identified too late in the process to address, or at least not without cost implications.

Vieste will customize a scope of work to meet the needs of each client, and can address all critical phases of the development process through the following:

  • Concept Development, Facilities Programming & Project Planning

  • Pre‐Opening Asset Management (Owner Representation)

  • Investment Analysis

  • Mixed‐Use Structuring & Facilitation

  • Technical Services Agreement Negotiation & Oversight
