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.
