Understanding Zoning and Zoning Potential

In the world of redevelopment, it's often the medium-sized projects that steal the spotlight.
We're talking about those apartment buildings with around 50 to 200 units – they're not too big, not too small, just right. And let me tell you, they're like a sweet spot for developers.

Why? Well, for starters, this size range hits the perfect balance. 

It's big enough to make things economically viable – meaning developers can make money while still creating cool places for people to live. But it's not so big that it becomes overwhelming. 

These projects allow developers to get creative with their designs, making buildings that are both practical and eye-catching.

But it's not just about the buildings themselves. These medium-sized projects come with all the bells and whistles that people want. 

Think essential amenities like gyms, community spaces, and maybe even a rooftop garden. 

And let's not forget about parking – there's usually enough space for everyone's cars, which is a big plus in busy urban areas.

And here's the kicker – local authorities love these projects too. They see them as a win-win. Not only do they bring new life to old buildings, but they also help make neighborhoods better. 

That's why they're often more than happy to give developers the green light.

So, when it comes to redevelopment, it's clear that medium-sized projects are where it's at. They're not just buildings – they're the key to creating vibrant, thriving communities that people are proud to call home.



Feasibility, Yield, and Concepts

At Taylor Architecture & Design, we move swiftly to provide developers with practical insights early in the negotiation process. 

Our expertise goes beyond ideas – we analyze potential projects thoroughly and create preliminary layouts quickly. 

This allows developers to understand what's possible on a site and its financial implications upfront. 

Armed with this knowledge, developers can negotiate deals confidently and make informed decisions about their investments, ensuring they're on the right track from the start.


Identifying and Applying for Tax Credits

Tax credits and incentives can make a big difference in the success of a project, and at Taylor Architecture & Design, we're skilled at spotting and utilizing these opportunities. 

Whether it's securing valuable tax credits or navigating the intricate process of pilot approvals, we go above and beyond to ensure our clients receive the maximum benefit. 

Our team works tirelessly to minimize tax liabilities and optimize returns, ensuring that every development deal is strategically structured for success. 

By leveraging our expertise in tax incentives, we empower our clients to enhance the financial viability of their projects and achieve their investment objectives effectively.

Through meticulous research and proactive engagement with regulatory authorities, we identify and capitalize on tax credit opportunities early in the development process.

Navigating the intricate web of approval boards and zoning regulations can be daunting, but with Taylor Architecture & Design by their side, developers can rest assured. 

We take a proactive approach to engage with approval boards, attending hearings and presenting projects in a favorable light to secure timely approvals. 

Our track record of success speaks to our ability to navigate even the most complex project situations, ensuring that our clients' developments move forward smoothly and efficiently.
