Real Estate As Catalyst For Job Creation And Economic Development

Real Estate As Catalyst For Job Creation And Economic Development


The International Economic Development Council has three upcoming training courses to assist communities in leveraging real estate assets to create jobs and economic vibrancy for their communities. Two great courses: Real Estate Development and Reuse to be held in Baltimore and New York and a Great New Course called Advanced Mixed-Use Real Estate Finance.

Two chances to take the course Real Estate Development and Reuse

As economic developers work to improve the communities in which they work, real estate development and reuse often comes forward as a popular economic development tool. While most real estate development projects occur entirely within the realm of the private sector, the public sector becomes involved in real estate projects as it works to create jobs, improve the tax base or encourage development in a particular area, among many other reasons.

Advanced Mixed-Use Real Estate Finance

Mixed-use development provides opportunities for economic development practitioners to participate in projects that can incorporate housing, small retail businesses, commercial space and other uses. There are many financial tools available for mixed-use development, and if brought together in the right way, for the right uses, they can do the job. But how do you use single-purpose financing tools to structure financing for a mixed-use facility? What instruments are available and appropriate? What if their criteria seem to be contradictory?
