Environmental Considerations

Just because the property you are considering isn’t a publicly acknowledged brownfield site doesn’t mean it’s not subject to environmental considerations. Even large parcel agricultural land can potentially pose significant clean-up issues. Once you own the land, you’re on the hook for any requirements going forward.

Environmental assessments must be conducted. Understanding the environmental risks associated with a property before you buy it is critical to the success of your project. You need to know the likelihood of any site contamination, identify wells or possible underground storage tanks, and assess potential adverse environmental impacts from adjacent land. Foundry Commercial can help guide you through all of these environmental considerations. Get in touch today.

Municipal Considerations

Zoning requirements, easements, stormwater regulations, tree conservation, open space requirements, and improvements to rights-of-way are just some of the local ordinances that could impact a project.

Every municipality has its own set of rules and guidelines governing land use and development. Attorneys and engineers will be brought in to help with these issues but partnering with an experienced group like Foundry Commercial, who will help you navigate them is an essential step in a successful land acquisition project.
