Resorts in Mexico and Hawaii

Peterson Economics also offers detailed experience evaluating resorts in Mexico and Hawaii. Over the past six years, Peterson Economics has completed market and financial analyses for more than 75 proposed new resorts and second-home communities in Mexico, focusing on the west coast and the Baja Peninsula. These complex projects typically include golf, boutique hotels, spas, and upscale real estate. Peterson Economics has also performed a variety of smaller assignments in Mexico to evaluate repositioning options, club management issues, marketing issues, and other related topics.

In addition, in the past several years, Peterson Economics has completed market and financial analyses for a wide variety of proposed new projects in Hawaii. These projects include a detailed market and financial analysis for the most upscale new oceanfront second-home community in the Hawaiian Islands – the soon to be repositioned Makena Resort, located on Maui -- as well as a possible conversion of the Fairmont Orchid at Mauna Lani on the Big Island to a condo-hotel. During the past 15 years, Mr. Peterson has completed more than 30 major consulting assignments in Hawaii, including market and financial analyses for a wide variety of resorts on the Big Island (e.g., the highly successful new Four Seasons Hualalai Resort, the new Kolea Resort at Waikoloa, and a proposed new resort on the North Kohala Coast), along with a number of resort, residential, and retail projects on Maui (e.g., the ultra-upscale Maluaka condominiums). Mr. Peterson has family roots in Hawaii dating to the 1890s, and formerly lived on Maui.
