Commercial Real Estate Development

June 19-21, 2017


Designed to analyze the real estate development process primarily from the perspective of the equity participant, this course concentrates on the identification and evaluation of critical assumptions related to the creation, construction and operation of economically viable commercial real estate projects. Inherent risk factors, and ways to manage risk, are explored. All phases of the development process are examined ? from idea conception, contract negotiations, and marketability, through asset management. During this intensive three-day course, prominent and expert real estate attorneys will guest lecture and review, in detail, two common contracts utilized in the development process ? a Joint (LLC) Venture Agreement and a Construction Loan Agreement.

The course distinguishes between the markets for real estate space (occupancy) and the market for real estate investment (capital). It goes on to evaluate the impacts of global, macro, and local market forces on both.

Many current issues in real estate are covered in this course. These include the recent and continuing housing ?crisis,? the globalization of real estate capital and its impact on pricing, technology, the changing spatial structure of cities (what this means for location decisions), and the evolution and increasing scale of real estate development.
