Development by Design is a hands-on workshop for personal, professional or community-based real estate developers who want to learn more about how to ensure their projects become lasting assets to the neighborhoods they’re working in. We’ll explore how context, from existing infrastructure and policies to residents’ interest and circumstances, impact decision making.
The evening will begin with 2 very brief presentations on design in real estate and the redevelopment of The Elevator Building in Detroit. Then attendees will be divided into virtual breakout groups and we’ll introduce the workshop.
An optional intermission or facilitator Q & A at 6:30 PM will be followed by the interactive group exercise using a real case study. Participants will practice making development decisions based on various factors, including geography, policy, economics and, most importantly, people.
All participants will receive a copy of Design Core Detroit’s Design Guide: Real Estate Development. This is a Zoom webinar event. Details for entering the webinar will be sent upon confirmation of your registration. Attendance is limited to 25.
