Representative Matters

  • Negotiated an increase in the scale of a 165,000 S.F. industrial distribution center with the ACOE, on behalf of a Florida developer, which substantially increased the project’s market value. Subsequently secured permits and other entitlements for the project’s construction which included a waiver, by FEMA, of a costly flood plain study; negotiated a waiver by a local municipality of a costly tree survey & arbor permit for a substantial savings to the developer; and negotiated a 50/50 cost sharing agreement with a local utility company to construct an eight-inch water line over a significant distance which also resulted in a substantial cost savings for the developer.
    ● Concurrently and within approximately 18 months, assembled, entitled, subdivided, financed and closed on a 50-acre office and industrial park; an 18-acre industrial tract; and a 21-acre suburban office park which was approved for 240,000 S.F. of Class A office space. Also, permitted, financed and completed approximately 200,000 S.F. of Class A industrial distribution space within approximately 18 months.
    ● Negotiated the financial participation of a Florida municipality in connection with the construction of infra-structure improvements for a 490-acre mixed-use project on behalf of a large scale national developer. The municipality’s projected financial contribution was valued at approximately $20 million.
    ● Co-negotiated a complex development agreement with a California municipality which enabled a multi-national developer to proceed with the construction of a 300,000 S.F. Class A office building which had been delayed by a building moratorium.
    ● Secured the exclusive right to redevelop two city blocks in two major downtown Southern California cities on behalf of a multi-national developer.
