Requisite(s): (16235 Urban Economics AND 16655 Property Finance AND 16333 Statutory Valuation and Compensation AND (16656 Sustainable Construction and Development Management OR 16657 Property Investment and Portfolio Management))


This is a capstone subject that is the culmination of the student's course and their learning experiences to date. Specifically, the class focuses on the delivery of a comprehensive development proposal with supporting site analysis, market research, financial analysis, sustainable design and transit-oriented development strategies. Issues to be addressed include building/land relationships, planning and development application requirements, site analysis, encumbrances on title, neighbourhood compatibility, market demand analysis and financial feasibility parameters, factors impacting appraisal, tax application (GST, marginal tax, etc.), design (building and site), transportation and accessibility, and sustainability factors. Although some work is completed individually, throughout the session, students work collaboratively to consider all aspects involved in making the development proposal.

Multiple trips to the proposed site, both as a class and as individuals and/or teams, should be anticipated.
