University of Miami School of Architecture

Real Estate Development Methods for Urban Redevelopment and Preservation Offered by the Knight Program in Community Building
March 16-17, 2006 at the University of Miami

Traditional downtowns, main streets, and historic districts are experiencing a renaissance nationwide. People want dynamic, pedestrian-friendly main street environments in which to shop, work, live, and socialize. As this trend grows, professionals involved in development, planning, and community building are seeking the knowledge, tools, and resources needed to revitalize these areas and breathe new life into old buildings.

This intensive seminar focuses on the challenges and opportunities of urban redevelopment and preservation. Experienced developers and experts share knowledge and techniques for identifying competitive opportunities and orchestrating successful real estate development projects.

The course reviews fundamentals of real estate development, the development process, industry specific terminology, and incentives for development. Participants learn from real-world examples, including an in-depth case study on downtown historic real estate; walk through the steps necessary to finance a project; and leave with a basic knowledge of the workings of real estate development.
