CDA is powered by Econsult Solutions, Inc (ESI), Philadelphia’s leading economic consulting firm.
ESI provides insights into economic problems, policy questions, and strategic thinking. Our work focuses on providing customized economic expert services in Real Estate, Transportation, Economic Development, and Public Policy and Finance.
Our staff members have outstanding professional and academic credentials, including active positions at the university level, wide experience at the highest levels of the public policy process and extensive consulting experience.
ESI has positioned itself as a preferred provider of economic and fiscal analyses. The firm has performed economic and fiscal impact studies and related analyses for a diverse pool of clients, public and private, helping them understand the economic footprint of a project or policy in terms of output, jobs, spending and taxes and the net impact a project has on a local, state or federal government, including how new tax revenues and incremental expenses can be borne by the impacted government.
We are a trusted advisor for not only successfully communicating and articulating the quantitative impacts of institutions, but also the qualitative narrative that helps transform the local counties, surrounding neighborhoods and the state region in which these institutions reside.
Going beyond simple data assistance, CDA and ESI offer a better understanding of the different types of impacts at the community level of land use decisions and development plans to developers, planners, school districts, local government officials, and researchers.
