Using a case study approach, participants will learn the fundamentals of real estate development using actual development projects as “backdrops” to the concepts, applications and discussions. Leading community-based real estate developers will present case studies on some of their latest “crown jewels,” highlighting their actual problems, challenges and opportunities they encountered with their development projects.  Participants will have the opportunity to tour the development site and examine the overall structure of the development project, focusing on the analyses behind the development and investment strategy employed. 

The workshop will provide participants with an insider’s look on how the project was conceptualized and developed.  During the course, consideration will be given to property and site analysis, market conditions, municipal approvals, acquisition strategy, construction or renovation costs, economic viability, and community and governmental relations. 

Participants will be responsible for analyzing the project based on facts and opinions presented by the developer, as well as evaluating the merits of a set of different alternatives. This interdisciplinary, case study approach will place each participant in an actual business environment, by examining real situations and development projects.  The workshop will be facilitated and taught by experienced real estate developers, and the NJRA Real Estate Development textbook will serve as a tool to supplement the lectures and discussions.   

The key learning objectives are:

·        *  Assess the primary factors affecting the feasibility of a real estate development project and how to minimize risks;

·          * Discuss legal restrictions, rules and regulations pertaining to land use, construction and development;

·          * Understand basic finance and real estate concepts and terminology and how to attract equity capital;

·          * Explore resources and tools used to engage in the real estate development process; and    

·      * Examine and discuss the approach and unique opportunities and challenges associated with repurposing existing buildings.
