so i've noticed that the latest downturn seems to have killed off clients' enthusiasm for greenfield development. instead, the large majority of work i get tasked with is either infill or redevelopment. this has been a fascinating process to observe, as homebuilders are realizing that their survival will likely require a change in course, that infill and redevelopment may be more difficult, but such sites are really the only ones that are selling at all right now. those builders that choose to adapt will survive, and those that don't will probably fold, or become less profitable. while all of this seems obvious to us, some of my clients have been doing things their way for a LONG time, and changes occuring in demographics, economics, and consumer preference represent some serious obstacles, especially in how they expect to continue operating.
