On February 23rd, the SBE will launch the first graduate student competition focused on sustainable real estate development. Comprised of students from at least three disciplines, teams will be asked to generate a (re)development concept for a site that they select that promotes a triple-bottom-line approach to decision-making. The primary objective of the Competition is to foster innovative thinking among graduate students by connecting real estate development analysis, strategic planning, and social and environmental responsibility in a proposal that is replicable and achievable. Total prizes for the top three teams will be $40,000!

The deadline for student team registration is Friday, December 10th.
