Sustainable Real Estate Development: An Introduction to Developing Transit-Oriented, Complete and Sustainable Communities
  As a result of current economic conditions and new State laws (SB375 /AB32) aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the future of real estate development in California seems to be moving toward complete, compact urban neighborhood infill projects that are transit oriented (located near bus and other public transit nodes).

Participants will learn the principles of how to develop and construct sustainable neighborhoods, by evaluating opportunities to gauge if they are transformable or not. This is a crash course on green building on a neighborhood level.  Participants will gain skills on evaluating site selection, entitlements, pre-development financing, construction and marketing of green building and sustainable neighborhoods. Market trends and State and Federal regulatory requirements are making complete sustainable neighborhoods the future of real estate.
