Going vertical in commercial real estate can be a daunting task, but one that yields attractive returns - if you have the right knowledge, skills, and best practices at your disposal. This course offers you a comprehensive step-by-step process - from concept to disposition - to make your vision a financially viable reality. Whether you're acting as a fee-paid developer or building your own investment, you'll learn proven techniques to assist you throughout the building development process to create the maximum value at disposition, including:

  • Acquiring the land
  • Curating and contracting the required team of architects, engineers, and contractors
  • Formulating the capital stack (i.e., financing)
  • Designing the optimal building for the site
  • Analyzing market research to set appropriate rents
