A New York-based acquaintance recently asked me if I thought there was still development opportunity in Miami. I smiled, nodded, and then proceeded to tell him about the continued influx of residents and businesses arriving in the City regularly. The sustained population growth is fueling long-term development opportunity.
As Miami continues to flourish with real estate and development activity, it attracts a growing number of out-of-state developers every day. My team has guided many of them in developing successful projects throughout the tri-county region, specifically within Miami-Dade County. These projects include designing and permitting for unincorporated properties governed by the County, as well as sites within the incorporated cities in Miami-Dade, which are… < Read the full article on Bohler’s website >

Obvious sites in the right location are difficult to come by, if they exist at all. As a result, developers are being challenged to evaluate sites differently than they have in the past.

Instead, they found an undersized site in a wetland-filled floodplain. By adjusting their site selection approach, they saw potential and were able to make the challenging site work.
The next time you find yourself searching for an easy button that isn’t there, consider these three ways to make a less-than-desirable site work – and potentially save time and money along the…. < Read the full article on Bohler’s website >
Sites are more likely to succeed over time if they are positioned to adapt to change. During design, there are layout and building options that better prepare owners for changes in use and make the site more attractive to future buyers or tenants.
Here are three examples of flexible design options that accommodate different future uses, reduce redevelopment construction costs, and ultimately, increase property value…. < Read the full article on Bohler’s website >
For Texas developers, the recent “Shot Clock Rule” can potentially accelerate project timelines and streamline approvals. Here’s what you need to know about how the rule may affect the local land development approval process.
Prior to House Bill 3167 (the “Shot Clock Rule”), Texas jurisdictions established their own land development review processes.

COVID-19 has flipped the script on commercial design trends, bringing a renewed focus on drive-thrus. As a less risky method to make purchases during a pandemic, the drive-thru has become a key differentiator for retailers of all types. As many struggle with declining sales due to restrictions and stay-at-home measures, retailers are finding renewed value in their drive-thru capabilities.
At Bohler, our teams are seeing an influx of requests to add drive-thrus to existing stores. We’re also seeing projects midway through the entitlement process—even a few in construction—redesigning the project to add a drive-thru… < Read the full article on Bohler’s website >
