Activating Redevelopment Plans: You Have The Plan,

Now What? $75

Does your town have or need a redevelopment plan? Have you designated areas in need of redevelopment or rehabilitation?

All of these are valid considerations and questions when change and improvement needs to take place in a community – is there a Redevelopment Plan and what does that mean? This workshop will provide participants with an understanding about issues and conditions that trigger the need for redevelopment plans and the process and concerns involved in negotiating the implementation of your plan. Key elements of a viable and practical plan document will be defined; the process for selecting a redeveloper or acting as your own development entity will be examined; how do you consider and negotiate the fiscal impact that redevelopment can have on your municipality; and what side of the aisle are you looking at the plan from and do you understand the other sides point of view?...details

Attracting & Negotiating with Equity Investors $125

Attracting & Negotiating with Equity Investors

Equity has become a more essential source of capital for residential and commercial development projects and developers are forced to contribute more equity capital in development projects.  Since the recent economic crisis, most projects will not support and lenders will not allow more than 80 percent, and sometimes 60 – 70 percent of debt financing in the deal.   So how do you attract the equity capital after you have exhausted all debt financing alternatives?  The first step in attracting equity capital is “penciling out” the project to know what you have to work with, then structuring and negotiating a suitable partnership.

This workshop will feature George Vallone, President of the Hoboken Brownstone Company, now located on his 15 acre, 2,000 unit redevelopment project in downtown Jersey City, New Jersey.  He is the immediate past President and now Chairman of the Board of the New Jersey Builders Association (NJBA).  Mr.Vallone, a national sought after speaker, will discuss how to strategically evaluate, position, and present your project to equity investors.  Also, it may sound somewhat simplistic but who are these potential partners?  Come learn what types of projects and structures these equity investors’ prefer, and where to find these potential partners from an industry expert.  Seats are limited. ...details
