Development Math 101

Lunchtime Forum

Building new housing is complicated and costly. From land acquisition to project design to project entitlement to financing, a developer must go through numerous steps before the first shovel hits the ground. The actual process and financing realities can be confusing, and as a result, well-intentioned decisions can lead to unintended consequences. Join us to demystify the math and learn how we can make more informed policy decisions in the future. Co-presented by the Terner Center for Housing Innovation.
