TUMI Saves 1 Week in Leesburg, VA

A recent Permit Place project involved a renovation and tenant improvement permitting for TUMI. The retailer was opening a 2,532 square foot shopping center space located in the Town of Leesburg, VA. 

Our team was tasked with the critical role of securing a zoning permit to complement an already approved building permit. The project required navigating the city’s zoning and building regulations to ensure compliance.


The retail tenant improvement project went smoothly. Our team faced no significant hurdles, thanks to the proactive groundwork laid in the initial stages of the project.

The key to the smooth handling of the permit expediting process was our comprehensive Due Diligence research. This research involves identifying essential project contacts early on, understanding the specific submittal processes, adhering to plan formatting, and acknowledging naming standards, fees, and building codes specific to the Town of Leesburg. Armed with this information, we could streamline the approval process effectively.

Project Wins

The project’s major win was the swift approval of the zoning permit, which our team secured in just one week, compared to the estimated two-week turnaround. We then took over the building permit issuance process and got the zoning permit attached. 

Our team’s efficiency and thorough preparation were key in expediting the permitting process and exceeding expectations.

This project illustrates Permit Place’s expertise in navigating the complexities of permit acquisition and emphasizes our commitment to advancing our client’s projects with speed and accuracy.
