Fiscal Impact Analysis for St. Francis South Development in Santa Fe County

SWPM conducted a fiscal impact analysis for a proposed 68.9-acre large scale, mixed-use development (offices, warehouses, medical facilities, multi-family residential lots, and other uses) in Santa Fe County. The project required an analysis of initial infrastructure development costs and projecting the anticipated potential tax revenues to be generated by the development. 

Santa Fe Housing Study - Gearhart Apartments

SWPM conducted a market study of available housing in Santa Fe.  The purpose of the study was to identify the need for affordable and market rate housing in Santa Fe. The report resulted in a zoning change to allow the construction of an apartment complex to meet the need for housing in the Santa Fe area.  SWPM staff testified before the Santa Fe City Council as to the merits of the zoning change. 

Presbyterian Santa Fe Medical Center Fiscal Impact Analysis

SWPM conducted a fiscal impact study to identify the impact that building a Presbyterian hospital would have on the Santa Fe economy.  In addition to conducting the analysis and preparing the report, SWPM provided expert testimony at the Planning Commission meeting at which constructing the hospital was approved. Although Presbyterian Health was our client, we worked very closely with City of Santa Fe staff to ensure all City requirements for the fiscal impact analysis were met. 

Tierra Contenta Village Plaza Shopping Center

SWPM conducted a market study in 2011 for a new proposed shopping center in Santa Fe near Tierra Contenta. The proposed developed is a mixed-use project that will provide retail, office space, hotel and other services to residents in the southwest sector of Santa Fe and extended areas beyond. In 2016, SWPM was asked to update the market study conducted in 2011. The results of the market analysis indicated that there is substantial demand for the retail services, hotel rooms and office space to be provided by the Tierra Contenta Village Plaza commercial development 

Multifamily Rental Market Supply and Demand Analysis

SWPM was commissioned to conduct an analysis of the demand for a new multifamily housing development proposed for the southside of Santa Fe. SWPM gathered information from a variety of sources, including: population growth statistics, demographic changes, new building permits approved by the City’s Land Use Department, and occupancy data provided by CBRE. SWPM used this data to update previous housing demand analyses and to create a new demand model for housing in Santa Fe.
