I repeat: HIGHEST AND BEST USE. It's a widespread and well established basis for appraising the value of vacant lots. For example:

Highest and Best Use

A property must be appraised in terms of its highest and best use.

The definition of highest and best use is as follows:

The reasonable, probable and legal use of vacant land or an improved property, which is physically possible, appropriately supported, financially feasible, and that results in the highest value.

Google "highest and best use" and you'll see lots more:
