In 2011, Oxford Chase Development, Inc. was selected by Dollar General Corporation to be an exclusive developer for their Build-To-Suit program. In this capacity, we are given recommended site locations by Dollar General. Based on their requirements, Oxford Chase finds sites, contracts to purchase and then begins the due diligence and feasibility process of securing the location. Once all permitting and approvals are in place we look to begin development as soon as possible. Development usually takes around 4 to 6 months from start to turnover. Since beginning with Dollar General, Oxford Chase Development has completed 5 (five) projects in Maryland & Delaware and has approval from Dollar General to build 3 (three) in Maryland & Delaware as well as 2 (two) sites under contract to purchase.
