Real Estate Development
860-297-4660 :: Hartfordmaher@halloran-sage.com
Commercial real estate development is a dynamic, multi-faceted process that demands both legal and project management skill. We work with clients in the planning, financing, construction and operation of any real estate project. Our services include entity formation; property acquisition; environmental, zoning, subdivision and land use approvals; environmental due diligence and regulatory compliance; tax planning; project design and construction contracts; and project management and leasing. We regularly assist clients with structuring and preparing a variety of common interest community documentation, easements, leases and other land use contracts and controls to facilitate real estate development.
Our experience in real estate development is significant. We have represented owners, developers, landlords, tenants and other parties in a wide range of residential, retail, office, industrial and warehouse, hospitality and recreational projects. Among the developments we have spearheaded are public/private ventures, affordable-housing projects, common-interest communities and energy generation and distribution projects. We have extensive experience in zoning, subdivision and other land-use matters in connection with development projects and other transactions. We secure federal, state and local environmental and land-use approvals, including special permits and variance requests. We also represent owners and other interested parties in zoning and administrative appeals. We assist clients in development and construction permitting and in construction and architectural contract negotiations.
We regularly assist developers and financial institutions in analyzing and managing environmental risks in real estate deals, including Brownfields projects within Connecticut and New England. For property redevelopment, our attorneys structure public and private financing packages, including development loans, grants, tax increment financing and other tax incentives.
