There are many things to consider when selecting your build site – factors that could extend the timeline of your project like local municipalities and access; considerations of the property that could dramatically affect the budget like existing conditions and utilities; and factors that can make your wishlist impossible like zoning and buildable area. There are also positive factors to consider that can enhance your daily lives, such as recapturing views or maximizing an odd-shaped lot.
Whether you are building a home for yourself or are looking to develop an investment property, it is crucial to work with a site-specific architecture firm with ample experience in development. An architecture firm with specific development expertise gives you the advantage of foresight into many of these factors, long before you make an offer.
What To Expect
As a concept-driven design studio, we believe every unique characteristic of a property matters. Our long-running relationships with hard-working brokers and realtors – across NYC, Long Island, and the Hudson Valley – help us identify sites that may not have even hit the market publicly yet. For each property that we think might suit your needs, we will create a proforma to help you quickly understand building cost, acquisition costs, and identify nearby comparable properties to ensure a safe investment.
