MN Commercial Property Search Now Available at

Lakeville based, APPRO Development and CERRON Commercial Properties, are pleased to announce we now have an added feature on our website! You may now search not just CERRON’s active commercial property listings, but ALL commercial properties in MN (publically listed). CERRON has been working hard with our web developer to include this feature on the APPRO and CERRON website and are excited to unveil this added feature this week.

We have made it very easy to search commercial properties on our website. When you land on our home page, you will find a couple of search features on the left side of the page:

1. By clicking on the “Search Our Listings” tab, you are able to search all of CERRON’s active commercial listings posted to our website.

2. By clicking on the “CERRON Commercial Properties” tab, you will be able to search all commercial property listings (available to the public).

We have created an easy search form for you to use. Once you have entered your search criteria and click on the “Search” tab, you will see all active commercial listings meeting your search criteria.

Whether you are looking for industrial, warehouse, retail, office or land listings in Minnesota, for lease or for sale (or both!), you will be able to search these commercial property types quickly and easily with our new commercial listing search feature.

Once you find a property(-ies) meeting your criteria, feel free to contact us using the Contact Form on the listing page to schedule a showing or find out more information. You may also easily pull up the same listing by keeping the unique listing # handy to include for future reference or in the Contact Form.

APPRO and CERRON are pleased to be able to offer this added feature on our website!

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.”

APPRO Development, Inc. has been developing land in the midwest, including North Dakota and Minnesota, since 1987. We have helped land owners navigate the seemingly daunting processes involved in land development, by starting with the creation of a comprehensive schedule for you.
