South Metro Miracle League: Mini Golf

Every child deserves a chance to play. Mini golf is a past time for kids of all ages. However, children with physical disabilities who use wheelchairs or mobility devices often miss out on the fun and excitement because most mini golf courses are too narrow, steep or filled with barriers. South Metro Miracle League, along with Brackett's Crossing Country Club, Appro Development and the City of Lakeville, are on a mission to make mini golf available to kids of all abilities with a full accessible 9-hole mini golf course in Lakeville.

Options for purchasing an affordable warehouse with office

Our team at Appro would like to share some information regarding information needed to make a decision on purchasing an affordable warehouse with office. Many small business owners always run into the question of choosing to buy or lease property, and it all involves around the cost. There are certain forms of a lease, but it all boils down to buying property to own for a certain period while making payments to the owner until the lease is expired. The last thing you want to happen is to buy property and then to realize a year later that it would have been a better option to rent. To help, we gathered some good information that will analyze the right fit for your business. For most cases, you only want to lease if you plan on being in a location for a short period, and would want to buy if you plan on remaining on that location or a longer period of time. The following will help guide you through this process of finding available industrial sites affordable for your business.

1031 Tax Deferred Exchanges Explained

Our company would like to share some information regarding a 1031 exchange, also known as like-kind exchanges. This is very relevant to an industrial business owner and may be seen as very beneficial to look into further. 1031 exchanges have been a vital aspect of the tax code since 1921. It allows investors or business property owners to sell a property, buy a new property, and defer paying capital gains tax on the sale, as long as both properties are of like kind. In the future, the taxes will have to be paid because it is a deferral, not an exclusion. There are many rules for how the exchange must be carried out, so we provided some options that may be useful for business owners of industrial buildings.

Last Mile Logistics: Case Study, Rosemount, MN

Last mile logistics is a hot topic in today’s retail environment. We have seen the decline in the standard retail storefront over the past few years, with many of these storefronts have been replaced by Amazon Prime trucks zipping across the freeways, fulfilling orders placed online for items which used to be purchased at the neighborhood store. So, what do these changes in consumer habits, and therefore changes in supply chain logistics, mean for builders, commercial real estate practitioners, investors, and owner/operators? We offer a definition, considerations, a case study and additional resources to consult for logistics site considerations.
