Owners of commercial properties sometimes find that their holdings have caught the government’s eye as potential locations for a train line, a municipal building or a public park. When a building or lot is taken through eminent domain, the value of the property often becomes a matter of dispute between the government and the owner. Was the property, in its soon-to-be former life, a rental apartment building, a building full of leased office spaces or a warehouse? What if it had the potential to become these things but was not yet developed? Could it have been more?
