Research and Analysis 

Our in-house dedicated research team is the foundation to understanding the unique requirements of each project. Our team also subscribes to an array of third-party technology resources for municipal cannabis ordinance tracking and updates, which allows us to stay up-to-date on any changes or developments in localities that may be of interest for our clients. This comprehensive approach to research and analysis enables our deal making team to operate efficiently.

GIS Mapping Team

Our in-house team of GIS professionals consolidates the municipal research into interactive and visual maps that make it easier for our clients to understand the opportunities and challenges of a particular jurisdiction. These maps can display critical information such as zoning regulations, setback from sensitive uses, cannabis competition, and other relevant data. By providing our clients with a clear and comprehensive visual representation of a potential location, we enable them to make better decisions, faster.

I have had the  privilege to work with Bryan McLaren and the Zoned Properties team for several years. They were able to secure the licensing and approvals for a cultivation operation and find a long term tenant to occupy my property. I would highly recommend them for any cannabis related project.
