Scope of Work:

- Property Management




This owner came to RLS asking for assistance in negotiating with the City of Westminster to gain the necessary approvals for Brian McKee, owner of Aspen Arbor Animal Hospital, to build a new facility. Upon RLS becoming involved in the project, RLS identified several issues with the existing parcel other than the offsite improvement requirements of the City. These challenges included parking easements, environmental mitigation expenses, title issues, access and drainage challenges and general buildable square footage on the site. RLS eventually recommended that Brian sell that parcel to a more appropriate developer and purchase a new parcel.

RLS has now assisted Brian in locating and developing a new parcel, which is more suitable for his needs. RLS narrowed the choices for Brian by putting together comparison proformas and timelines for Brian to review. These comparisons included not only construction costs, but costs of development on the various sights, which can vary greatly depending on the municipality. Once the site was decided on, RLS completed all of the due diligence necessary to ensure the site was appropriate for Brian to purchase and then assisted with the purchase. RLS then worked closely with the architect, engineers and contractor to obtain all necessary approvals and permits for his development and managed these parties to complete the buildings within budget and on time.
