Commercial Real Estate Challenges

There are times when commercial real estate ventures are met with challenges in Massachusetts and other New England locales. Many areas and structures are designated as historical sites and protected from development, expansion, or other changes. Local boards, committees, or community organizations may take up the cause of trying to derail certain commercial real estate projects. Regulations pertaining to historical sites or areas can even impact what color you can paint a commercial real estate structure. Our attorneys know the local codes and zoning regulations that may stand in your way or impact your progress. We will act as a local advocate who will present your side and work to garner the results you need to move forward. We can even proceed with appeals and successfully litigate your case.

Environmental organizations and land use regulations may also pose a unique challenge. Areas, such as wet lands or protected woods, may border your commercial real estate. Our firm has the experience and negotiating skills needed to navigate the balance between progress and community preservation. We will represent your interest to any organization or board that challenges or questions the project at hand. We will effectively clarify questions and concerns, while protecting your rights and preserving the integrity of the endeavor.
