Land Use and Development Attorneys

Sands Anderson PC's team of real estate development and land use attorneys combine a broad range of experience to provide you the service you need for accomplishing your goals of putting your land and real estate holdings to productive and profitable use.  Every parcel of land carries with it a wealth of possibility - from large-scale mixed-use developments to the reopening of a small country store.  The opportunities to transform your ideas into successful results are limitless.  However, the path leading from idea to reality is not always easy to travel: financing, development regulations and land owner concerns, land-use laws, easement, zoning ordinances and construction concerns may seem impossible to overcome.  The land use lawyers of Sands Anderson's Land Use and Development Team are prepared to guide your idea through this uncertainty to reach your goals.


Perhaps the most important step in development is financial: gathering the necessary resources to purchase the property and develop it.  You may be considering financing your development in a traditional manner or by using one of the many new methods available.  Our team of land development lawyers in Virginia and North Carolina is ready to help you.  Along with crafting traditional financing agreements and loan arrangements, we have participated in the establishment of numerous Community Development Authorities and helped implement the Public-Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act of 2002 (PPEA), which authorizes public-private partnerships to develop infrastructure and other public needs.  Additionally, a number of our attorneys have long-standing and productive relationships with some of the area's top lending institutions, including participating in the organization of numerous community banks.

We have extensive experience with industrial development revenue bond financing and governmental economic development incentive programs and initiatives.  Several of our land development lawyers are nationally recognized Bond Counsel.  Projects we have financed include historic building renovations, health care facilities, manufacturing plants, shopping centers, office buildings, self-storage and other warehouses, retail stores, residential developments and recycling facilities, among many others.  We have created special tax districts to finance infrastructure for the benefit of the residents of the district.  Under certain circumstances, these districts can be used by a developer to his financial advantage if he has knowledgeable attorneys involved in planning his project at the outset and can obtain the cooperation of the local jurisdiction.

The land development attorneys of Sands Anderson serve clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic from our offices in North Carolina and Virginia.
