Calculating density or the potential development size for a subject property is an important initial piece, while evaluating the purchase of land.  Essentially, it is the amount of development per acre permitted on a parcel under the applicable zoning, commonly measured as dwelling units per acre (du/ac).  This workshop will show the CRE Agent the basics on how to calculate density by way of the Miami 21 Zoning Code, Miami-Dade and Broward County Codes.

Part 4: The Zoning Hearing Process
June 9th from 9:30am to 12:30pm

A Zoning Hearing Process is required whenever a property owner or lessee desires to change the use of land.  The request is made by applying for a public zoning hearing.  Zoning Hearings are required for approval of all new proposals, and all development plans for a proposed use of land or proposed structure that have been disapproved by staff.
This important workshop  is a must for any CRE Agent, as it will take you in a visual informational presentation of the required process. Zoning Hearings periodically become the focal point in a CRE transaction.

The Entitlement Process is the process through which a real estate developer or land owner seeks the right to develop (or redevelop) property with governmental approvals for zoning, density, design, use and occupancy permits.  The workshop will explain this important CRE process within the Due Diligence phase.  Understanding the real estate development process, converting a piece of land into a new retail center or office building may seem as easy as clearing some dirt, placing the foundation, and finalizing the construction of the building.
