Vertical and Horizontal Mixed-Use Development


Carlton Fields’ attorneys have significant experience in the structuring, planning, and drafting of documents to create and operate multilayered, vertical and horizontal mixed-used developments. This experience includes structuring private-public partnerships, vertical subdivisions to allow separate ownership of parcels of either land or air space for divergent uses. Similarly, the sophisticated nature of mixed-use development requires the ability to allow creative financing mechanisms, including municipal tax-exempt and taxable financing for the integration of individual parcels into the mixed-use project.

Our mixed-use development experience ranges from 500-acre residential, retail, and regional mall developments with research development and medical facilities to multiple urban tower mixed-used structures including such diverse uses as performing art centers, urban mass transit, luxury retail, entertainment centers, five-star hotels, offices, and residential condominiums. Several of these developments include master associations and shared facilities agreements used by multiple developers. We have participated in the land use planning, financing, creation of governance documentation, and resolution of operational issues in multiple mixed-use developments.
