Workshop Projects

Each Winter and Summer, students in the PSU Real Estate Development Workshop produce a development plan for a property site in the Portland or Seattle area. Students form a real estate development team and produce an original development plan, including the development concept, the market analysis, the conceptual design, economic analysis, capital, and operations budget, and management plan.

The students' plan demonstrates and applies mastery of the development concepts and tools learned through their Master of Real Estate Development (MRED) coursework. The Center greatly appreciates the support of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP), the Building and Owners Management Association (BOMA), and numerous private sponsors and real estate industry mentors over the years.
