Land Development

Whitman Homes searches for all types of land: raw parcels, permitted projects, finished sites, 40B permitting, or even existing residences on larger tracts of land.

Many landowners are simply curious about the value of their property. We have the resources available to identify any sites potential. On larger tracts of land, we strongly believe in the preservation of what nature has already provided. Thus we typically pursue the development under a "cluster" basis which allows for smaller lots, less roadway to maintain, and the preservation of open space within the project for everyone's enjoyment.

Working your way through the regulatory agencies involved in the development of land can be extremely complex. Many towns currently have "anti-growth" or "restrictive growth" policies that place severe limitations on a developer; however, our engineers take pride in working with town planners and officials to obtain their input on the development of a project prior to the submission of any preliminary plan.

We handle everything including perimeter surveying, wetland flagging by botanists, soil analyses, water table evaluations, zoning regulation reviews, drainage calculations, land planning, road construction, bonding, and landscape architecture. For the layperson, the process of taking raw land to a finished, ready home site is an enormous task. This process, combined with the substantial upfront expenditures, creates the inherent risk of the development business.

Over the pastĀ 15 years we have developed several projects ranging in size from 5 home sites to 30 home sites in the South Shore area. Autumn Trails in Sharon, Steeplechase in Foxboro, Indian Ridge in Sharon, Silver Brook Farm in Norwell and Carriage Park in PembrokeĀ are just a few.
