Schack Institute of Real Estate
Infrastructure & Urban Development
Infrastructure provides the framework for all urban real estate development. This course discusses the major urban systems: water, sewer, storm drainage, electricity, telecommunication, and transportation including transit. The student will learn, via class and field experience, how these systems function, are crucial to long term sustainability, and impact real estate development in the United States and around the world. The course discusses macro-scale systems such as regional transportation, and also deals with the implications for neighborhoods and specific sites, including aspects of site planning.
