2. In marketing, an area that a single sales representative or team of sales representatives are assigned to cover.

This helps prevents sales reps from competing with each other for commissions.

For real estate developers, the primary significance of the Waterfront Plan is that: (1) Certain sites or types of sites on the waterfront now zoned for industrial use are seen as suitable for rezoning to enable housing or retail use which may have a higher economic value; and (2) Most new residential or commercial developments on the waterfront would have to be built in a relatively low- or medium-rise, high coverage form, and would also have to provide public esplanades or pathways along or leading to the shoreline, and visual corridors enabling unobstructed views of the water.
Such finding leads to the determination that "(t)he general decline of industry, especially maritime uses, provides the opportunity to expand areas zoned for residential and commercial uses and foster redevelopment opportunities that would revitalize the waterfront".
