Small Scale Real Estate Development Workshop

  • Hotel Syracuse 100 East Onondaga Street Syracuse, NY, 13202 United States (map)

he City of Syracuse invites you to join us June 27th for the upcoming Small Scale Real Estate Development Workshop, a day-long session designed to introduce the principles behind neighborhood-based real estate development projects.  The workshop offers specialized training about how to create small projects (typically 1-3 story buildings, less than 20 units, residential/commercial/ or mixed-use). 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 community.

Who should attend?

  • Individuals in construction, design, planning or real estate looking to either enhance their current practice or make career transition
  • Volunteers or professionals in business associations, main streets associations, historic preservation groups and neighborhood improvement groups looking to champion incremental development in their communities
  • Public sector professionals in city management, economic development, planning, and related agencies who are looking to make it easier for small development projects to occur in their town
  • Professionals in non-profit development organizations, churches, and community development or housing development organizations who need new strategies for small lot development
  • Private banking professionals specializing in mortgages, commercial real estate loans or SBA loans and professionals as at Community Development Financial Institutions and Community Foundations who want to become more effective investors

The workshop is conducted by the Incremental Development Alliance, and is being organized by a host committee including the City of Syracuse Industrial Development Agency, the Allyn Foundation, the Syracuse-Onondaga County Planning Agency, Greater Syracuse Land Bank, Home Headquarters, EDR, and the Home Builders & Remodelers Association.  The Incremental Development Alliance is a national non-profit that works to strengthen neighborhoods through ground-up real estate development.
