His portfolio includes mixed-use transit-oriented development, commercial office/retail, and all forms of multi-family projects, including affordable, special needs, market-rate ownership and rental, and senior living. His work ranges from low- rise through high-rise construction types. Matt is also the lead entitlement efforts as a development planner on various private-sector master plans, station-area plans, transit and neighborhood plans, and providing rezoning advocacy.
