Subdivision is one of the many ways you can develop property. It involves converting one piece of land or existing dwellings into several.
What’s the big difference between a two or a three unit site? Apart from the obvious number of units, there can be a big difference in the equity you can create.
Infrastructure projects yield indirect benefits through the supply chain, employment, business and retail growth, consumer spending, social benefits of community development related directly to the project and my favourite, property values ...
