Don’t Let Proximity Issues ‘Kill’ Your Development Dreams

By January 17, 2019 No Comments

Recently, our Southeast Sr. Business Development Manager, John Croom, answered a call from an ambitious developer who was facing a major challenge in his development dreams.


The Problem: Wastewater utility capacity and proximity to existing sewerage systems.


If the developer were to tie-in to the local utility it would cost upwards of $12,000,000.00 due to easements, distance, permits, etc. Additionally, capacity wouldn’t allow for the total build-out they envisioned therefore decreasing profitability if not, killing the deal entirely.


After introducing the decentralized phased growth lease model for short-term and long-term goals, it was clear that an affordable solution was on the horizon. A savings of almost $9,000,000.00 to be exact.


Have you ever faced this dilemma and ultimately stopped development of your planned community because of the distance and cost to tie-in to central utility infrastructures?


Don’t let proximity issues ‘kill’ your development dreams.
