Land Development

We Build Beautiful Custom Homes: We Also Build Beautiful Custom Land Developments

We love living in the Portland, Oregon area, so we love being part of creating beautiful new land developments that preserve our craftsman heritage as the region grows.

We are looking for:

  • Land to purchase and develop
  • Buyers for land that we have purchased
  • Landowners who want to develop their property
  • Development Partnerships

Anlon is a full service, highly experienced construction company capable of efficiently fulfilling projects from infill development to large subdivisions. We are very flexible, creating right-sized teams to fit our projects, and we have great relationships with conventional lenders and partners that allow us to move quickly.

See our Gallery Page for developments we have been involved in.

If you have a development project in mind, or you simply have questions, please give us a call. We’d love to talk with you.


Our Design and Build Process

Step 1: Let’s Get Acquainted

Every successful project begins with a conversation. If you are a landowner looking to develop your property give us a call: we would like to talk with you regardless of what stage you are in. This is the time to discuss the vision for the development, to look at potential issues and brainstorm possibilities. Most importantly, it’s a time to get to know each other and see if we are a great fit. After all, it’s going to be a long journey together.

Give us a call. Or drop us an email using our Contact form, and we’ll get in touch with you.

Step 2: Due Diligence 

Duration: Up to 120 Days

All plots of land come with a combination of constraints and opportunities. We do a thorough inventory of your property to identify what government entities have jurisdiction over the land, investigate any issues related to our development plans that will need to be dealt with, and determine any costs related to those issues. We will strategize how to overcome issues that may impede development plan approval, and look into any alternative approaches as necessary. We will attend to all of these issues before arriving at general planning and development costs.

Step 3: Preliminary Plat 

Duration: 90 to 120 Days.

After completion and acceptance of our due diligence investigations and findings, our development team will begin the preliminary Plat Application. The plat covers the proposed layout of the project and includes all impact reports required by the jurisdictional entities. These reports may cover issues such as: geotechnical, transportation and traffic, habitat or wetland considerations, stormwater infiltration, etc.

Step 4: Application Submittal and Completion

Everything we’ve learned together in our consulting and design steps will now go into a detailed outline that includes your building schedule and costs. We’ll go over this with you in detail, answering any questions you may have. Once we’ve have all the permits in place, we can set a start date. We’ll both sign a detailed build agreement at this time.

Step 5:  Jurisdiction Review of Plat Application

Duration: 30 Days

Once we submit the Plat Application the overseeing jurisdiction(s) will have thirty days to determine if the application is complete. If the application is seemed incomplete, we will have an additional thirty days to provide any additional information that is required.

Step 6:  Preparation of Construction Plans

Duration 60 to 90 Days

Once Anlon has received the Conditions of Approval, we will begin preparing the construction plans, broken into phases if required. When we have completed the first draft of the plans, we will submit them to the jurisdiction for review.

Step 7:  Jurisdiction Review and Revisions

Duration: 30 to 60 Days

Once the jurisdiction receives our construction plans they will distribute them to their various departments, each of which will review and make comments. Based on these comments, our civil engineering team will make the necessary revisions and prepare for construction.

Step 8: Permitting and Construction

Durations: Defined by Construction Plan

All permitting will now be taken care of, and site construction will begin.
