- Labor force issues
- Improved real estate availability
- Market access
We are proud of our track record having developed and marketed over 350 hundred acres of industrial property. Curtis Layer has completed a wide range of industrial construction projects ranging in size from 5,000 to 350,000 square feet.

Importantly, we have strong ties with local government agencies to facilitate incentives, construction plan approvals and infrastructure improvements.
