Flip the property. Take it down. Break ground. No matter the objective, you need the right permits in hand to make your development project a success.
As a developer working in different regions, cities, and markets, you understand the need to know the permitting processes and quirks of each local market. Learning these nuances, however, takes time, which is hard to come by in the development world. Understanding critical paths and identifying hurdles, such as design and impacts fees, before they’re problematic is also important—and again takes time.
How do you make time when permitting timelines can vary based on your market and the availability of municipal review staff? Not to mention the ever-changing municipal development codes and amendments that put more constraint on your development’s deadline. The solution: find a partner with local connections, national resources, and experience playing the permitting game.
