Decades of Expert Land Development

Since 1986, PLSA has provided a wide range of land development consulting services in Southern California for landowners, real estate developers, and public agencies to bring their creative visions to life. Through problem solving and innovative design approaches, we transform underutilized land into new communities, workplaces, schools, revitalized infrastructure, commercial facilities and public amenities. Throughout the company’s history, PLSA has consistently upheld three core principles: commitment to our clients, commitment to our employees, and commitment to the quality of our work. From a project’s inception through construction completion, we advise our clients and advocate on their behalf, as we navigate the complex world of permitting and municipal regulation while actively seeking opportunities to streamline the land development process and increase project efficiency. As our industry continues to evolve, PLSA continues to provide the same consistent level of elevated consulting services that are the cornerstone of our reputation throughout Southern California.
