Elliot Kilham focuses on the intersection of public and private development sectors, providing real estate, public finance, and economic analysis to clients in California and throughout the United States. His projects range from market analysis in urban revitalization and redevelopment plans to complex public-private financing strategies and the evaluation of the economic impacts of public investment in transit and sustainability initiatives. He is particularly passionate about transit investment and the nexus between transit, housing, and social equity.
Elliot is currently advising private developers and public agencies on financing and implementing small and large-scale redevelopment projects in California and Colorado. Other recent work has included the creation of market-based planning strategies for bus rapid transit stations in Denver and Fort Collins, Colorado; estimating the economic benefits of increased transit investments in Colorado Spring, Colorado; and an industrial land study for Denver’s recent comprehensive plan update, including recommendations on land use policies to balance redevelopment with the need to preserve industrial lands in urban environments.
