Fuller has experience developing property for its own account, as well as assisting third party investors with development services. Through our history Fuller has built relationships with the necessary professionals (architects, contractors, engineers and various subcontractors) to conduct a quality development. We have experience in conducting both horizontal and vertical developments for office, industrial and retail facilities. Each project is overseen by a principal of Fuller.
Site selection is an important part of the development process. While land may appear similar, all tracts face different challenges. Fuller is very experienced in understanding the site issues, such as, detention and related loss of land, utility availability and cost to extend such utility lines, capacity of utilities, MUD vs. City provided services, etc. Once a site is selected, Fuller will prepare a design, build and cost schedule, so all parties involved are knowledgeable and the process is transparent. Generally, we find there is a large gap in an owner’s knowledge of their property what it takes to actually develop the property. The development industry is constantly changing as the industry is subject to more regulatory issues, such as, ADA, LEED, FEMA and flood control, as well as the particular municipality or county’s regulations.
Fuller has created substantial value in the rehabilitation of many projects. Applying today’s codes, regulations and corporate expectations to a 30 year building can be a more difficult process than building from the ground-up. Redevelopments include 3900 Essex (a 235,000 sf office building) in River Oaks, 16400 Park Row (a 131,000sf office/industrial building), and 2600 North Loop West (a 135,400sf office building).
