Lansing Companies is continually working to foster new relationships with accredited investors and institutional partners for new projects and joint ventures. Our numerous relationships and expertise in transforming entitlements of raw land into master-planned communities generate substantial returns, especially as builder development plans are made public.
If you are an individual or a bank with large land holdings, we can quickly assess your property and respond to you with an array of options to maximize its potential. Often times, it may be advisable to structure a simple and effective Joint venture to maximize the benefits of your land holdings and we are set up to do so better than any other company. We also assist financial partners in repositioning troubled projects. We obtain entitlements that predecessors have been unable to obtain, restructure public debt, and manage the sale to maximize return. Many lenders and institutional partners have entrusted Lansing Companies to do just that.
Lansing Companies continues to add quality properties to our portfolio for future residential communities. Our inventory of investments ranges from 40- to 7000-acre parcels in five counties in Southern California (Los Angeles, San Diego, Riverside, Kern, and San Bernardino) as well as other growth markets in Nevada, Arizona, and Colorado. We assist several of the largest housing builders with their acquisitions and focus our purchases in these areas, especially potential developments greater than 200 acres with 2 to 5 units per acre in entry-level markets suitable for single-family, detached product as well as high-density apartments, condos, and town homes.
Lansing Companies can structure acquisitions for the short or long term. The ideal is to simply purchase a property, process entitlements, develop, and sell the project to a homebuilder. Lansing Companies and its investors receive all of the value that is added through the entitlement and development process. Another arrangement is a long-term option in which Lansing Companies processes entitlements for the project during the option term. This often allows the landowner to receive more for their property than they would have received from a short-term escrow.
