Workshop Alert: How to Build Small Buildings in NC

Develop Small Buildings You Care About

Early Bird Deadline Tuesday, February 21st!

The Small Scale Real Estate Development Workshop is a day-long session designed to introduce the principles and implementation mechanisms behind neighborhood based development projects. The workshop offers specialized training about how to create small projects, like 1–3 story buildings with less than 20 units, which are residential, commercial or mixed in use. The course assumes you know a lot about where you live, but not necessarily much about the real estate process or building development.

Through presentations on finance, design and site selection, a hands-on practice exercise, and networking with local like-minded people, this workshop is the first step to becoming a small developer yourself or creating a supportive ecosystem for small development in your city.
