April 24-25, 2013 Washington, DC
As the economy continues to slowly rebound from the Great Recession, multifamily housing has been a relative bright spot in real estate industry. Buoyed by demographic shifts into urbanizing areas, an increased pool of renters in the form of displaced homeowners, and low vacancy rates, the multifamily industry has realized significant capital flows.
As apartment construction continues amid plentiful capital, some markets may quickly become overdeveloped. It will become increasingly important that new projects and acquisitions be well-conceived, positioned, and designed. This redesigned ULI workshop will teach you how to position your products and investments for future success in an increasingly competitive market.
Using a combination of case studies and lectures, experienced industry professionals will cover the principles for successfully siting, designing, positioning, and developing a multifamily project. Participants will examine recent multifamily development trends including a current market overview, and examine the unique attributes of developing this product type. Topics covered will include site selection, market and feasibility analysis, capital structure and financing, financial analysis, entitlements, marketing and leasing, and property operations and amenities.
