Project Description

Land Use

Resolute Consulting understands the interrelated facets of real estate development, particularly in the greater Chicago region. Defining and shaping the perception of a project, preemptively mitigating organized opposition, promoting the design and community benefits, supporting the pursuit of incentives, managing political and regulatory risk through effective public engagement – Resolute Consulting can manage all of these components to help achieve our clients’ business goals. Our clients in this sector have included Republic Services, DePaul University, and A. Finkl & Sons among many others.


Pro-actively building support for institutional expansion

PROJECT: DePaul is the largest Catholic university in the nation and one of the nation’s 10 largest private universities.

STRATEGY: Resolute Consulting developed a communications and organizing plan to guide Chicago’s largest academic institution through complex expansion approval processes.  The well-organized surrounding community previously opposed similar projects.

OUTCOME: Our team helped revise the institution’s publicly released community engagement plan and successfully built significant community support for short- and long-term construction projects.
