Class Title Public Private Partnerships – Financing Equitable Development
Description Public Private Partnerships are the method increasingly used to foster new development and promote urban revitalization. An array of policy, finance and regulatory structures have been put in place to create developments that serve a public purpose through incentivizing private actors. The course will explore the increasing shift to public incentives for private development and explore specific transactions which have created new ways of tackling tough issues in the urban realm. The course will survey innovative developments both nationally and internationally from a variety of angles. Investigating case studies from the perspective of the city agencies, developers, stakeholders, lenders, investors and foundations among others, students will gain a multi-faceted knowledge of complex deals and work through financing scenarios.

Assignments will be collaborative and interactive with student teams developing and responding to contemporary issues in social policy, urban planning, urban design and real estate development. A range of guest speakers will interact with students in salon style convenings in order to investigate and critique current projects and practices while exploring new methods for engendering urban scale interventions. Over the course of the semester students will learn how to incorporate specific tax incentive, social finance and regulatory programs into a variety of investments to promote equity, obtain feasibility and kick start redevelopment for a variety of scenarios.
