01

Auto Dealership 

Purchasing a vehicle online is a viable option these days, but only a small subset of the population is comfortable doing so. Many patrons begin browsing online, but most will eventually end up in a physical showroom, and that’s why dealership refreshes remain popular.

Hotel

The hospitality industry has changed a lot in the past decade. Guests want to select lodging that aligns with their values, and hoteliers are making eco-friendly choices and incorporating biophilic design into new spaces.

Multi-Family

Renting is more popular than ever – the population of renters in U.S. cities has increased by over 30% since 2000. This has driven a commensurate increase in multifamily construction, and developers are striving to stand out from the pack. Current trends for attracting and retaining residents include time-savings services, flexible wellness zones, and pet-friendly amenities. These “extras” are attractive, but also add to a developer’s bottom line, and many seek out tax savings strategies to offset some of this initial investment.

Developers are heeding the call, and many have converted increasingly vacant indoor malls into bustling open-air shopping centers.

Restaurant

The restaurant industry has always been competitive, as consumer tastes and trends can be quite changeable. Even so, entrepreneurs with a passion for food are undeterred, and many are taking advantage of the recent CARES Act to increase critical cash flow in a restaurant’s early years.

Treehouse

In nearly 20 years as a Cost Segregation Professional, Capstan’s Ziv Carmel thought he’d seen it all.  He was wrong.

This fall, Ziv journeyed to scenic Norway, Maine, to explore The Woods Maine, a high-end custom treehouse that combines bespoke and bucolic with remarkable results.   The Woods Maine is a privately-owned Luxury Treehouse designed by world-renowned Treehouse Master, Pete Nelson.  The stars of Animal Planet’s Treehouse Masters, Pete Nelson and Nelson Treehouse & Supply are artists who seek to make everyone feel “at home in the trees.”  With The Woods Maine, they certainly succeeded.
