other uses

It does not meet criteria for other types of use.

Even though this uses "mejor" which means better, what this paragraph is saying is that the building or area, has been built solely to meet industrial needs. This text probably relates to a factory shutting down. Ideally, the building would be used in other production matters, but in this case, your paragraph indicates that there the building is a lost cause- that is, there is no other use for this building other than that for which it was built.

Hope this helps.

most suitable purpose

In the sense that the land may not be put to any other, more suitable, use or destined to a better purpose.

“...The land tract may only be used for industrial purposes, inasmuch as this is an “exclusive industrial area”, lacking in other possible applications. The “most suitable purpose” criteria may not be applied thereto....”
