Government & Entitlement Approvals
Did you know just gaining site approval could take as long as a year? If you’re hoping to get a project moving, most communities will slow you down with complex public approval processes and stringent environmental regulations. LeFrois streamlines this process for you. By working effectively with public agencies, gaining community support, and fulfilling our commitments, we have established a valuable reputation for real estate development in Upstate NY. Our reputation for responsible development encourages the cooperation of all participants so that your project gets approved as soon as possible.
Want to free yourself of burdens getting in the way of your core responsibilities? A sale-and-leaseback agreement allows you to obtain capital and relieves you of facility operations and property management – which happens to be one of our specialties. Here’s how it works: you sell your property to LeFrois and we agree to lease the building back to you under a long-term arrangement.
