We guide real estate development that looks to the future, from every angle.

WOWA, led by founding principal Wolfgang Wagener, offers multidisciplinary knowledge, high-level experience, and evidence-based foresight to help clients navigate a complex and shifting real estate development landscape.

We shape strategy to realize each development’s highest potential.

Our strategic approach structures decision-making around clients’ core goals. We focus on the early stages to ensure long-term success: developments that can be successfully marketed, readily approved, and physically constructed, and perform optimally in use.

We analyze, learn, and adapt, tailoring best practices to new contexts.

Our selected case studies detail strategy in action. Over 25 years, we've honed our skills on developments totaling more than 50 million square feet, enhancing the value we create for developers, organizations, communities, and industry leaders.

We chart paths forward by understanding long-term change.

Our thought leadership illuminates major trends that are transforming our industry and our world. We are committed to advancing human health and environmental stewardship, leadership in digital innovation, and advocacy for architectural excellence.
