Creative Design and Development

We provide a variety of development management services for Partners and Clients, including:

Turnkey Development Management

VisionMaker Worldwide's Destination Development Plan ("DDP")

When a potential Partner or Client approaches us with a development opportunity – either a land use concept looking for a site or a site looking for the highest and-best land use – our recommended first step is VisionMaker Worldwide's proprietary Destination Development Plan ("DDP").  During this 120-day to 180-day engagement, we thoroughly assess all existing analyses and planning documents, and ensure that all work (e.g. feasibility studies, creative concepts, marketing and sales strategies, financial pro forma analysis, etc.) is of the highest quality and based upon supportable underlying assumptions. Based upon this work, VisionMaker Worldwide then delivers a customized DDP document for project-specific needs to ensure that all Project stakeholders are thoroughly assured of the project's viability and attractiveness before moving forward with master planning or schematic design phases of development.

When a potential Partner or Client approaches us seeking assistance with an operating entity – whether it’s a newly-opened destination seeking to establish its presence in the marketplace, or an established destination seeking to improve its performance, or a destination in transition evaluating growth or exit alternatives – our recommended first step is VisionMaker Worldwide’s proprietary Operational Assessment.
