industrial zoning would be the max zoning. You may get away with manufacturing zoning. Let me know what area you are looking at, I may be able to look for you and do an executive summary on your needs. Thanks, Joe at buildr42@aol.com

Almost every city and county has its own zoning. If you have a specific property in mind, look up that property then contact local zoning authority. If you need a special use or change, I suggest getting a local attorney who regularly practices in real estate and zoning in the locality. If you do not have a property or even a location in mind, most listings will have the zoning. If it appears that it will work for your use, then look further into it. In a lot of cases you will need a special use permit, be sure it is in place before you buy. It will be between you and the seller as to who pays the cost of a change in zoning or special use permit. Your offer to purchase should be contingent upon the property being usable for your purpose. If your attorney does not prepare the offer, have them review it and if you are using a different local attorney have them review it.

It is going to depend entirely upon the geography. Land use rules and regs like zoning vary from state to state, county to county, and city to city. Contact a commercial agent in the area and let him/her handle it for you.
