Construction / Development
We represent property owners throughout the real estate development process, including handling development rights transfers, inclusionary housing and other zoning bonuses, zoning lot mergers and subdivisions, tax lot mergers and apportionments, cantilever and construction access agreements, contracts with architects, contractors and other professionals and preparation of filings with various governmental agencies.
We also prepare and negotiate all types of easement agreements including light and air easements, access easements, egress easements and reciprocal easement agreements. We have extensive experience drafting and negotiating construction management and development agreements for owners, developers and contractors as well as representing parties seeking access to neighboring properties or seeking compensation for such access in connection with the development, construction or improvement of real property.
Our extensive network of relationships with local architects, expediters, contractors and other professionals saves our clients time and money and allows us to provide sound and timely advice regarding local laws, construction, zoning, use, utilities and other issues which typically arise in commercial real estate development.
