Hi. John.

John Massocca

And know kind of the of philosophy within you kind store be big has other growing so, MSAs. underwriting percentage segment, of been and hold of a as automotive segments. look focus as Typically, investments your largely kind sea your those I properties Does that on infill at and that to seems same kind pipeline. of

Danion Fielding

that in, of to started markets properties country going same to classes had at individual is in real standpoint, Yes. in looking The of is invest located we we're in believe we yes. cases characteristics similar types invest estate within big areas that are answer the corner. From the MSA in on asset to short the many still When the a CNG. picture these but like the in different

and door as many to properties for and driven that convenience so Our convenience by next same you the see and gas traffic would the gas. of is the characteristics demand

historically, feel natural if we've sort extension closely and this So, a very the it aligns underwritten us. to is we of way for

John Massocca

And kind kind opportunities? the ramps is long-term maybe that factors of on But the to do to potentially are obviously, way Okay. is X% there kind the potentially redevelopment within of any those to pipeline accelerating to that of XX%. the what goal and pipeline, then gating execution

Mark Olear

Mark. it's Yes,

-- where process, also, of but most the in process the the timing level order So, redevelopment the properties and zoning, appropriate the through the embedded permitting in to somewhat state these municipal go leases, planning by is of pace entitlement or properties, entire of level of the marketing property governed gain the the existing the and process are permitting.

can much that only we we control much as effort put possible. as them, as that into And as enforce

these pace biggest of of that's commencement. process into back is the So taking right probably and delivering governor timing through on the that those quite horizon that long the

John Massocca

But your and that keeps from just or in permitting to the you terms moving starting of is ramp? really you anything mean, there point the in maybe entitlement project where that getting I immediately X% and, process, trying start to that

obviously, kind is take getting deal and to other over of I of that need -- be redeveloped any, know, done quicker? that kind with the counterparties but side there anything of you the operating property
