URP 595 – Public Private Partnerships - Financing Equitable Development


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 will work through financing scenarios.
