  • Zoning/Permitted use for parking

    Biggest problem right now is finding a piece of land that has the right zoning, once I find it, making sure that the use falls into place with that lot. Industrial is the easiest zoning, but most are in an industrial park, those tend to have PD or Associations that limit the use, making it hard to find a place at a reasonable price to purchase... Any ideas on types of properties that would be easier to purchase and maybe convert to outdoor storage?

    Industrial is most always the typical zoning for outdoor parking. What type of limitations are you talking about? Can you be a bit more specific?

        Hey Dave, he is in Florida. We have a rather large parking area there and we did not run into limitations on it and that is why I was wondering...any advice you may have is appreciated I'm sure!

          OK Contact a good Real Estate broker that does commercial rea estate, check on zoning, if it is not zoned for vehicle storage that can be changed with the board meeting at the county. Make your offer subject to zoning. Have a good layout plan for your lots, etc etc

            Sorry took a bit.... yes in Florida... I have found properties that meet the required zoning, they are just few and far between, and in the Orange County, the premium is so high that it makes my formula very tight on the numbers.... so yes, looking further out, but it just seems like its hard to really do it right and be close to a large city. I see guys doing it, but they were not purpose built for this, and most are not even zoned for it they just started parking RVs at their shop etc...

              Couple ideas:
              1. Google Loopnet Orange County, there are 388 commercial/industrial etc properties for sale. Pick a spot you like that has been listed a long time. Make a low ball offer. Look for a Cross Dock trucking location. They will have ample hardsurface already. Very little building structure and most people wont want to buy it, since it is purpose specific.
              2. Pick a spot between the major population center you want and the Rec area they go to. Pick a spot easy access off that highway, way out. They will come. The harder it is for you to find a spot in the City, the greater they will come to your location 20-30 miles away, on the way to their rec area.
              3. Look up the "Topic" I put out in the development section on "Zoning I-3 right?" Follow that and you will find property that is not listed, but for sale.
              4. The guys just parking at their shop aren't your competition. They may be doing 5 to 10; but your looking for a place for 200 to 400 spaces; plus facilities for the RV's and Boats.
