Zoning & Land Use

We provide clients with strategic advice through every stage of the planning, zoning and land use approval process for development projects in Georgia

We are at the forefront of every aspect of zoning and land use, leveraging close relationships -- cultivated over decades -- with local land use planning staff, development authorities, elected officials, and other governmental bodies and boards involved in the planning and approval process.  

We have appeared before numerous of local government boards to secure approvals related to every asset class in real estate, including mixed use developments, multifamily projects, retail shopping centers, educational and institutional uses, and industrial projects.

Our deep understanding of the concerns of key metro-Atlanta stakeholders allows us to negotiate zoning conditions that allow for successful petitions when presenting proposals.

When retained by a client, our firm identifies the key issue(s) of the matter brought before us. Together, we shape and pursue a cost-effective, well-timed strategy in furtherance of our client’s ultimate business objectives. While much of our advice is based upon experience with proven methods of success, we continue to implement creative solutions in reaction to the ever-changing business and political climate which shape zoning and land use.
