Schack Institute of Real Estate
Public-Private Real Estate Projects
Students gain proficiency in analyzing Public Private Real Estate Development Projects. Students will also learn how to design and propose a private development deal that provides real value to towns and cities. As part of this education, students will learn to address the intangible wants and needs of the community, and how to manage developers ambitions from the Public perspective. The first half of the semester will teach students some frameworks for developing and executing Public-Private projects. The second half of the semester will focus on the analysis and critical review of completed and in-process projects. During this phase, students work in teams to analyze either: a) a deal that is desired by the public and possibly feasible for private investment, or b) a project that is proposed by private sponsors who claim that material public participation is mandatory and beneficial to the local neighborhood, town or city.
