Workshop: Small Scale Real Estate Development Bootcamp

The Small Scale Real Estate Development Workshop is a day-long session designed to introduce the principles and implementation mechanisms behind neighborhood-based development projects. The workshop offers specialized training on how to create small projects, like 1-3 story buildings with less than 20 units, which are residential, commercial or mixed in use. The course assumes you know a lot about where you live, but not necessarily much about the real estate process or building development.

Through presentations on finance, design and site selection, a hands-on practice exercise, and networking with local like-minded people, this workshop is the first step to becoming a small developer yourself or creating a supportive ecosystem for small development in your city.
