Starting in 2004, Mr. Blackman established CWB Associates to assist property owners and the development community in working through the entitlement process. Specialties include urban mixed-use redevelopment projects, historic preservation-related issues and expert witness work. Clients include real estate investment interests in downtown, urban areas, as well as owners of high-value waterfront properties.
Many clients who seek resolution to code enforcement issues related to property they own or wish to acquire utilize the resources of the firm. Performing due diligence and "what if" development scenarios on various properties fill an important role in serving client needs.
Mr. Blackman has an extensive social media presence and is able to incorporate those services to the benefit of the firm’s clients. Digital photography and video documentation are a specialty. The firm operates as a sole proprietorship, however other professionals and assistants can be utilized, based upon project size and client demands.
