Real Estate Development: Land Packaging
This course is part of the Development Specialty Track. Learn more.
Land packaging is the second stage of the seven stage real estate development matrix. Land packagers acquire unentitled land and create a vision for future development. Land packagers buy land with potential and sell land with a plan. The critical condition for land packagers is gaining public approvals. Land packaging typically involves a zoning or re-zoning and the development of a conceptual plan for the property. Land packagers employ planners, architects and many other consultants in the process. Typically, a land packager does not provide physical improvements to the site, but sells to a Land Developer who will construct horizontal improvements. Land packagers create a vision and must work well with municipal government and local stakeholders to arrive at a plan that creates value. This session will explore how land packagers assess risk and analyze return for land packaging.
