Seifel Consulting (Seifel) is a strategic economic advisory firm that helps clients achieve their project goals, meet complex urban growth challenges, and create financially viable and sustainable developments.
Seifel has advised on real estate strategies that catalyze infill development, invigorate public spaces, enliven retail areas, provide housing for a broad range of community residents, and promote transit-oriented development. Seifel's expertise in guiding the successful development of a broad range of land uses has been cultivated through our work for both public and private sector clients on real estate projects ranging in size from $10 million to $6 billion, many of which have been led by women. For example, Seifel has advised on most of San Francisco’s major public private partnerships and collaborated with talented women on the redevelopment of properties throughout downtown and in the nearby Mission Bay and adjacent Mission Rock neighborhoods, which are adding thousands of mixed income housing units and millions of square feet of new commercial and R&D space to San Francisco. Seifel brings specialized expertise in the structuring and implementation of public private partnerships for infill properties, advising on the developer solicitation, evaluation, selection, and negotiation process.
Firm principal, Libby Seifel, is dedicated to advancing women’s leadership in business, real estate and technology through her work with the Women’s Development Collaborative, ULI Women’s Leadership Initiative and MIT. She is equally passionate about advancing best practice in urban development and serves on the faculty of the UC Berkeley College of Environmental Design MRED+D graduate program.
