“There’s a whole bunch of little things involved before we can take land and make it a buildable piece of land—what we call ‘shovel ready.'”

“The first phase is the entitlement phase, the second phase is the horizontal development, and the third phase is actually the vertical development where people actually see something happening. So before that we’re just moving dirt around in the second phase and in the first phase we don’t do anything…it’s just about approvals.”
