KB Advisory Group’s Town Center Projects


Town Center planning efforts are often bold and broad, accomplished with engaged community leadership, municipal staff, and other partners. KB Advisory Group has a history of creating detailed plans for developing downtown cores or Town Centers. KB helps those project efforts with Market Analyses focused on achieving financial stability and growth. The firm’s deliverables are financially practical and include actionable recommendations to attract residents, businesses, and visitors to the Town Center.


2018 Evans Town Center Urban Design Study: Real Estate Market Analysis for Columbia County, GA

KB Advisory Group was a sub-consultant on the Evans Town Center project. The firm provided a market feasibility study that examined existing conditions, emerging trends, and critical issues. It also identified opportunities for future Evans Town center development.


Stakeholder interviews informed the understanding of the development challenges. An opportunity analysis considered demographic trends and local and regional market conditions. KB’s findings incorporated relevant residential and commercial development, evaluated the housing stock and home sales prices, and profiled demand generators. KB’s Evans Economic and Market Analysis helped develop Town Center planning recommendations.
