The Complexity of Urban Waterfront Redevelopment
Waterfront brownfield redevelopment is extraordinarily complex, incorporating real estate economics, land use, community benefits, ecology, design and a host of associated disciplines. In this Solutions Series program, The Complexity of Urban Waterfront Redevelopment, Barry Hersh, Clinical Associate Professor at the New York University Schack Institute of Real Estate, focuses on the tools and techniques that help developers succeed in developing multi-faceted urban waterfront projects.
The report discusses acquisition strategies, regulatory approvals, environmental liabilities and financing, among other topics, and provides several case studies that reveal the overall opportunity, trends and challenges for successful revitalization of urban waterfronts.
This Solution Series presentation is based on a research project funded by the NAIOP Research Foundation. The Foundation fosters building better communities through practical research and education that advances the quality, and makes evident, the benefits of commercial real estate ownership and development.
The Solar Technology Reference Guide enables commercial property owners to take an active role in deciding which solar panel products are best-suited to install on their buildings. The guide identifies the benefits and limitations of a range of photovoltaic modules (i.e. solar panels) on the market today, such as glass laminate modules, tubular modules, flexible roll thin film modules, fiberglass-backed modules, and concentrator modules. Typical applications and market penetration are reviewed.
Smart metering has become a genuine buzzword over the last few years with deployment making significant headway in key states such as Calif., Texas and Fla. Strategies for cost savings are available regardless of building size and budget.
