In today's complex and ever-changing regulatory environment, it is critical to understand the legal permitting requirements for new development. Most projects require multiple permits, often from local, state, and federal agencies, and often with conflicting requirements. Additionally, many properties aren’t conducive to today’s retail tenants either due to zoning and use issues, or site constraints that require variances and other public hearing processes to obtain approvals. If permits aren't applied for as early as possible, or if applications are not complete, a project will potentially experience critical and costly delays.
