Summary of Webinar: Ever wonder why some sites sit and some get developed? How brownfields issues affect developer decisions. See how the brownfield redevelopment and real estate development process intersect. Fully participate in the process and understand the key players and critical decision-making steps. Topics covered include cover basic real estate terminology, concepts, and a general overview of the development process, including the role of critical players such as the development team, the public sector, and community stakeholders. Key terminology necessary to understand the development process, including proforma, cap rates, lease rates, defining costs, and other basics of real estate development will be discussed.

This is the first webinar in a FREE webinar series for the Office of Brownfields and Land Revitalization's (OBLR) RE-Development Academy for Communities, which also includes a half-day workshop at the 2019 National Brownfields Training Conference.. Together, they comprise a single, full Academy program designed to provide community members with a general understanding of real estate and brownfields redevelopment. Each session builds on information and skills covered in each of the previous sessions in the series and a workshop at the conference where you will compete to redevelop a most valuable and complicated brownfields site. Your participation in each session will ensure you get the most out of the training.

This webinar is being offered for community members (including local governments, economic development and environmental protection departments, community nonprofits, brownfield redevelopment agencies & other local stakeholders), technical assistance providers, and state and tribal partners.
