Most of this property is platted in parcels for larger projects, with some subdivision and re-platting into smaller parcels to facilitate immediate development. This mostly undeveloped commercial land is served by a strong road network. City water and sewer services are in place along a portion of Diplomat Parkway, and public utilities have been installed along Northeast 24th Avenue along the western border, facilitating utilities extensions.
