  1. As a multifamily developer this is just crazy. You cannot pay more than $30k per unit for rental land and make the numbers work and that is assuming average 900 SF units. Shrink them further and the land price eats up the total budget per square foot. Heck, most of Novarre(iation's) land prices are well below this per unit and they are condo. Brian
  2. I think the market is now.

  5. Don't worry, the site is going to be sold to another group that will reentitle it for the density it deserves. Beazer needs the cash... B
  6. I looked at that Mill recently but could not figure out what to make of it. Its an interesting old building with exposed wood beams on the inside and at least half of the building is salvageable. The owner started renovation at one point trying to make it a office/retail/restaurant center and figured out in the middle of the process that his numbers would not work as it was going to cost too much to renovate with the low lease rates in this area.
