What you can put on the property depends on lots of things. You should start with the City to find out what the zoning allows and what the setbacks are. I assume that the lot is wider at the back than the front? If that is true the building will propbably need to be toward the back? The starting point is the City and once you find out the requirements you will have to meet, you can have someone design a building that will adhere to the restrictions the zoning and building code place on the property. Before you pay to have something designed you might want to do a development spending study to see if it makes sense to build a building (owner/user, rental, spec build, etc., whatever the intended ultimate use is)? It may turn out that the lot is below the minimum lot size for an industrial lot?
