Los Angeles, CA – Jacobsen|Daniels (J|D) has been chosen by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) to lead a dedicated team in facilitating the acquisition of properties, property management, relocation support, and consultant services. Encompassing a range of crucial activities including real estate financial analysis, valuations, appraisals, market and economic impact analysis, highest and best use analysis for real estate assets, and various related services, the scope of this undertaking extends beyond supporting the acquisition of new properties for upcoming projects. The anticipated three-year, $1.5 million project will also play a pivotal role in enhancing the management of properties currently owned by LAWA.  

J|D is pleased to present a comprehensive group of firms comprised of: Chicago Title, Converse Consultants, Cornerstone Realty, Cushman & Wakefield, Donna Desmond & Associates, IO Environmental & Infrastructure, Mark Thomas, Plante Moran, R.P. Laurain, TranSystems, and Southwest Escrow.  

Together, this team brings a wealth of experience and skills to furnish LAWA with a diverse set of real estate, acquisition, and right-of-way services. Notably, these firms are recognized experts in real estate and planning services, with many having prior experience working closely with LAWA. According to, Project Director, Jeffrey Gilbo, “J|D has a long-standing successful partnership with LAWA, for years we’ve been performing services for the Commercial Development Division (CDD), but under contracts negotiated with different City of Los Angeles Departments such as The Development Group, this contract gives us the opportunity to work directly with the CDD.” 

As Los Angeles gears up to host the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games, a transformative journey unfolds from airside to landside at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). This evolution is part of a $15 billion Capital Improvement Program designed to modernize terminals, ensure a safer airfield, enhance access to one of the world’s busiest airports, and establish a long-awaited connection to regional transportation. The contract with J|D is a crucial component in supporting LAWA’s vision for the reimagined LAX, contributing to the success of this ambitious capital improvement initiative.
