All About WalkUPs: GWSB Offers Four-Day Urban Development Course

GWSB is offering a certificate program in walkable urban development in Washington, D.C., and Atlanta next month for real estate professionals, developers, city planners and place managers who want to learn more about the real estate market’s shift toward urban development.

The program is based on research on Walkable Urban Places (WalkUPs) by Charles Bendit Distinguished Scholar and Research Professor of Urban Real Estate Christopher Leinberger, who has released research studies on walkable neighborhoods in metropolitan Washington, D.C., and Atlanta.

Designed to provide a detailed education on how to develop walkable urban strategies and projects, the program includes three days of expert lectures on sustainability and land use, financing, gentrification, affordable housing, product mix and other aspects of real estate development and place management; city tours and field visits; and panel discussions on such topics as crowd sourcing for project approvals and financing.  The three-day program is scheduled for Nov. 14-16 in Washington.

A fourth, optional day is offered in either Atlanta (Dec. 6) or Washington (Dec. 7).

For in-depth information on the program, and a link to register, go here.
