Even after your careful post, I'm not sure I get that.
Is it your contention that design comes before property?  I'm no expert but
I was under the impression that the topography and substrate of the property
had to be considered in design.
Now, certainly a group will explicate some design values-like sustainable,
eco-friendly, vehicular access, preferred common facilities-but lots of
decisions will depend on how deep you must pour the footers, won't they?
Also, how would this advice change if a group was focused on urban retrofit?
Design must follow acquisition when you (for example) decide you're buying
up an ubran city block, or an old warehouse, no?
