Not-So-Big Real Estate: Growing Cities 3,000 Square Feet at a Time
The 2018 Young Leaders Group Annual Program
There was a time when most real estate development was done on a fairly small scale and places evolved and grew incrementally over time. This resulted in the unique variety and character of buildings that give neighborhoods the charm that people love. Today it’s harder than ever to build projects of modest scale, even as infill in the places where they already exist.
Why don’t we see more small and medium-sized developments?
What can be done to make more of them possible?
Kevin Cavenaugh of Portland’s Guerrilla Development will show us how he’s made not-so-big real estate work by:
- Using innovative design and forward thinking.
- Finding alternative funding sources and methods
- Creating a no-subsidy model for affordable housing.
- Developing buildings with a mix of uses.
- Cultivating an “open-source” ethos toward development.
- Embracing the complexity and personality of unique sites and existing neighborhoods.
PLUS: A discussion with Kevin moderated by David Frank, Interim Director of CPED, City of Minneapolis
Join us to see exactly how his work pencils out, down to the last penny in his publicly-shared pro formas (see below Event Details).
