Alan Razak Leads ULI Course on the Real Estate Development Process

From December 5 – 7, 2012, AthenianRazak Principal Alan Razak served as the principal instructor for an Urban Land Institute (ULI) workshop on the development process, which was offered to more than 50 real estate professionals.  The course provides an in-depth introduction to the language and practices in the development industry, covering three areas critical to understanding the development process, including:

  1. Preliminary considerations, market analysis, financial analysis, and strategic marketing
  2. Site selection and due diligence, land acquisition and deal structure, and entitlements and permitting
  3. Planning and design, construction management, and operations and property management

Alan, a respected thought leader in the industry, shared his insights from more than 35 years of working with public and private sector clients on complicated development and real estate projects.

The Real Estate Process I workshop will next be offered by ULI in June 2013. You can learn more here (, and find information about AthenianRazak’s development management expertise here (
