    No zoning. Simply (haha) permits.
    From a developer viewpoint the only advantage is financing the land. That’s about all he/she would be willing to give away. Apartments, townhouse or even commercial (size constraints). The advantage/problem is the area is heavily bi-lingual and gentrifying. Different targets.
    My take is becoming a developer is pretty steep learning curve. Doable but a lot of developers fail.
    Thanks to all for noodling this. Sticking a sign out sounds a lot easier. We get postcards every week.
    Sale is option one.

    Profits from being actively involved in the business of property development as a real estate dealer are considered earned income.

    Would you attempt to partner with a developer/builder and what terms?

    Nope, too much risk because (I’m assuming) you know little to nothing about development. No possible scenario. You likely have better things to learn than how to be a devleoper, and given you’ll done develop once, seems like a lousy return on that investment of time to try/hope and get a good deal.


    Would you simply sell it and be done?
