The new 94,000 square foot industrial facility is great news for First Park and neighboring Airlake Industrial Park, the second largest industrial park in the state of Minnesota.

Commercial Developers Applaud Recent Decision

Commercial Developers Applaud Supreme Court Decision

land development on wetland legal decisionAt APPRO Development, a commercial land developer providing design-build and general contractor services across the midwest, we were intrigued by a recent article titled, “Supreme Court Decision Involving Wetlands Helpful to Developers”, by Cleve and Rye.

“On June 25th, 2013, the Supreme Court of the United States expanded the circumstances under which the government may be liable for overreaching in making demands from a property owner as conditions for a permit approval.” According to a recent summary article relating to this decision, written by Gary A. Van Cleve and Timothy A. Rye, of Larkin Hoffman Daly & Lindgren Ltd., “the court has now clarified…that the government can be held liable for overreaching demands regardless of whether the permit is granted with conditions or denied because the property owner refused to accept the conditions. The court also said…that a condition in the form of a payment of money is subject to scrutiny for potential government overreach.”

This recent ruling should be considered a “win” for land owners, “since it expands the situations where the constitutional tests of nexus and rough proportionality will be applied in determining whether there is government overreach in exacting a price on a property owner as a condition for a permit approval.”

Reducing Your Renovation Costs by Thinking Green


Save money during renovation and constructionReducing Your Renovation Costs by Thinking Green – Economical, Green Solutions for Renovations & Commercial Building Projects in South Metro Minnesota and North Dakota is offered by APPRO Development, Inc. & CERRON Commercial Properties.

Being “thrifty”, “cost conscious” and “green” is something we’ve hopefully all learned to do over the past few years of economic change. The positive impacts of implementing good business practices, is good for both your bottom line and the environment, a double bonus! Instead of hastily throwing something away, find a way to re-purpose the item to save you money and help prevent our landfills from over flowing, something we all benefit from.


During renovations or commercial building project, there are potentially ways to donate or sell items that you no longer need. Countertops, office equipment and other items could become a tax write off* or benefit someone else. If you have customized or industrial equipment you no longer use, it could be listed for sale, potentially offering you more cash for your project!


If you’ve decided to build or remodel a space that you own, lease, or are new property you are searching for, we are happy to help you find an economical solution by possibly re-using items and finding cost conscious options. For example, let’s say you want to open a restaurant; there may be options for purchasing used kitchen equipment vs. buying everything new. In remodeling, you may be able to reuse countertops. Take a moment to look at what you have as a way of saving $ during your project! Additional financial information for your project is available on our website for cost segregation, 1031 tax deferred exchange and finance resources.


Remodeling or building, in an office space, bank, hotel, restaurant, warehouse, industrial, or other commercial buildings, whatever your needs are, we work with our vendors and subcontractors to ensure that we are providing our clients with the best pricing available, while providing green alternatives. Here is an example;


Recently, we had a project that we tested lighting in and opted to remove as it didn’t serve the needed purpose. Instead of being frustrated with the failed test and throwing out the lights, we stopped and asked, “Is there someone who could benefit from these materials instead of throwing them away?” A short internet search led us to the MN Association of Community Theatres, where we found four theaters in the south metro, who are now the elated recipients of new lighting. It has brought us joy knowing that we have been able to provide our community theater, Lakeville Area Arts Center, along with the Northfield Arts Guild, Mankato Mosaic Theatre Company and New Ulm Actors Community Theatre with much needed lighting.


The next time you are considering a remodel, expansion / addition or new building, know that there are options out there to be as economical & green as possible! We’re here to assist you in using your dollars as best as possible to ensure the success of YOUR business. Please contact us to discuss your options at 952-469-2171 (APPRO Development, Inc.) or 952-469-9444 (CERRON Commercial Properties).



*As with all financial matters, please consult your tax and/or financial advisor for advice/impacts regarding your specific situation.

Sustainable Commercial Development

Last night, I was watching an interesting program on Minnesota Public Television (TPT) called “Shaping the Urban Environment.” During the show they talked about the challenges and decisions communities are faced with when developing land in an area that has scarce and delicate natural resources. They began by explaining how commercial construction and even residential development of the past generations did not focus on their impact on the local environment, particularly. This piece just reinforced how important it is for development companies to make sure they are integrating green construction options for a sustainable future. This the best way for the commercial construction industry to make sure they are a focus on environmental sustainability. APPRO Development is committed to sustainable construction services and has been for 25 years.
