WHAT ARE COMMERCIAL ZONING LAWS?

Zoning laws affect where and how you can operate your business. Certain areas are zoned for specific uses. Areas that are zoned for commercial use are often able to support a wide range of businesses. However, there are restrictions. Some of the most common property uses in areas zoned for Real Estate Development include:

  • Office buildings
  • Shopping centers or retail
  • Hotels
  • Certain kinds of warehouses

In addition to these, some apartment complexes can be constructed in areas zoned for commercial use. Vacant land with the potential for future development can also be zoned as commercial.

Depending on the type of establishment you are developing, the laws may be more or less strict. There are a variety of concerns to keep in mind, including:

  • Parking
  • Property use
  • Location of utility lines
