For investors and developers, who may already have their respective acquisition and marketing teams in place, we also offer these additional consulting services: 

Development Potential


What can be built here?
What does this want to be?
What is the highest and best use? 
Prior to the purchase or development of a property it is imperative to have the clearest picture of the development potential of a site. A Development Potential Outline allows developers to better understand:
  • The applicable zoning and zoning code(s)
  • Key development restrictions: height, density, setbacks, etc.
  • Potential areas for highest and best use
  • Different Development Scenarios
  • Potential Eligibility for ADU, TOC, SB 5, Small Lot Subs
  • Potential development red flags and areas of consideration

"I can't stress this enough with investors-- know your zoning, know your zoning, know your zoning! I knew an investor who bought a commercial building zoned for 18 units by right, 23 units under TOC! And didn't know it, until after he had poured $100,000s into remodeling the space. If you know your zoning, you know your options and can better prepare for anything."
