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."
