Land Planning in Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Lighthouse Point, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and surrounding South Florida areas

Planning on how you will utilize your property, that's Land Planning. All site considerations must be analyzed. For a single family lot or site this is rather straight forth regarding items to consider which include:

  • per the Zoning Code what are the Allowed Uses, Conditionally Allowed Uses
  • all easements, utility, access
  • view restrictions
  • setbacks for buildings, accessory buildings, pool, pool deck, equipment, driveways, etc.
  • views, visibility site lines
  • adjacent uses

For larger sites, Commercial, Industrial, Multi-family Residential, Institutional, Retail, or Mixed Use the above must be considered, but additionally another layer of consideration must be analyzed.

This process, Site Analysis, also, in addition to those listed above, considers items like:

  • Prevailing winds
  • Access considerations
  • Utility availability
  • Existing vegetation
  • Existing soils types
  • View opportunities
  • Future adjacent land uses
  • Future zoning changes
  • School capacities and proximity
  • Roadway capacities
  • Fire fighting facility proximity
  • Governmental review process required

Once the Site Analysis has been documented then a Design Analysis can be documented. The documentation indicates conceptually how we respond to all of the items documented in the Site Analysis and potential Phasing.

Once the forgoing is completed, along with the Programming and/or Visioning, then planning the use(s) of the land can be planned.
