Real Estate Development
& Permitting


Keegan Werlin’s Real Estate Development and Permitting practice is led by Brian Golden, the former Director of the Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA). The practice provides expert land use, planning and permitting services, supporting real estate developers, municipalities and other clients. 

During his tenure at the BPDA, Golden guided more than 90 million square feet of development approvals through the BPDA’s permitting process, representing approximately $43 billion of investment, and supporting over 80,000 permanent jobs.  Golden grew the BPDA’s planning capacity, overseeing completion of the first general city plan since 1965, Imagine Boston 2030, in addition to comprehensive neighborhood planning studies representing 30 percent of Boston’s land mass.

Golden is joined by Senior Counsel Sean Nehill, who brings over 15 years of public sector experience from the Boston Planning & Development Agency and the City of Boston.
