About Us

Elizabeth Peterson Group, Inc. (EPG) is a land-use consulting and lobbying firm headquartered in downtown Los Angeles, CA, specializing in mixed-use, adaptive reuse, and hospitality developments located in historic and urban communities.

Since 2001, EPG has championed hospitality and live/work/play projects from inception to operation. With its entitlement and land-use experts, EPG moves through the complicated government and community approval processes required to open and sustain successful ventures. As a full-service consulting firm, EPG assists its clients with selecting the perfect site for their business, finalizing a winning concept, crafting a viable operation plan, bringing together a winning team of contractors, and managing the build-out, always with an eye toward making a new or expanding business successful within the unique and dynamic environment that is urban Los Angeles.

In addition to the impact EPG has had on individual companies and buildings, the firm is credited with transforming neighborhoods. Through the use of innovative adaptive reuse strategies, EPG has pioneered the redevelopment of the historic core of downtown Los Angeles, worked hand-in-hand with major developers in the Arts District, and catalyzed the positive reactivation of Hollywood Blvd.

Along with EPG’s deep expertise in regulatory requirements, government processes, and neighborhood relations, the firm attributes its success to the strong partnerships it has developed with city planning departments, building & safety departments, local law enforcement, and community and state government leaders.

Services

We offer a wide range of urban land-use and development services. Whether it’s selecting the perfect site, finalizing a winning concept, crafting a viable operation plan, or even bringing a winning team of contractors together and managing the build-out, we’re equipped with the know-how and expertise to help take your project from inception to operation.

The EPG team was instrumental in aligning our Conditional Use permit, licensing and other permits, and have been extremely helpful with following up to ensure all is well. EPG continues to be a go-to for assistance due to their experience and contacts, and is always a pleasure to work with.

Broadbridge LA LLC engaged Elizabeth Peterson-Gower and her group in the infancy of our redevelopment project. She came in, listened, and not only identified issues, but had the knowledge and experience to present the correct solutions. EPG understood the urgency in resolving time sensitive matters and diplomatically with charm represented us and our project with respect and care. Our project is where it is today, successfully moving forward, in great part to EPG!

We are advised by EPG in all issues related to City Planning, Zoning, and Liquor law. They are without a doubt the best land-use consultants in the city, especially as it relates to restaurant and bar usages. EPG does so much and they do it graciously. We appreciate their professionalism and friendship.

Projects

Over the past 15 years, we’ve worked on hundreds of development projects, ranging from residential & office buildings, to hotels and theaters, to restaurants and retail spaces. See a selection of projects to take a closer look at our work.

I have owned Temple Bar Concepts for 15 years, and during that time, I have owned and operated multiple bars and nightclubs throughout Los Angeles. The EPG team has represented me successfully in every one of those acquisitions, acquiring all permits and licenses necessary to operate. EPG has one of the strongest reputations in the city for getting the job done, in Los Angeles, a very difficult city to acquire any permit! I highly recommend EPG to any hotel, restaurant, bar, or nightclub proprietor.

Temple Bar Concepts

EPG was instrumental in helping us to successfully secure a CUP for a restaurant at the New Genesis Apartments, and to overcome substantial challenges from highly motivated and organized, but misguided community opposition. This was a high-profile project that received substantial press coverage. Despite the high numbers of people who turned out to oppose us, EPG was able to navigate us through the process to achieve our goal. EPG staff was prepared, professional, and proactive. We could not have succeeded without their help!

We have been working with Elizabeth Peterson Group for nearly a decade on land use and liquor entitlements approvals, and I am happy to report that we have an extremely successful track record with Elizabeth Peterson Group. Elizabeth and the team are pros at navigating through very challenging political processes in various municipalities, and I highly recommend this fine group to anyone who is looking for a favorable result in the land use and liquor license approval arena.
