This CLE webinar will outline best practices for overcoming the principal legal challenges facing developers, builders and the mixed-use development team when undertaking mixed-use projects. The panel will provide valuable insights on how to capitalize on the opportunities of mixed-use development.

Description

Mixed-use development projects are a continuing trend in the real estate industry. Because the projects combine both commercial and residential development and construction, they face complex design and building obstacles, as well as zoning, financing, public relations and governance challenges.

How can builders and developers plan successful mixed-use developments while addressing land use and zoning issues and navigating financing options? What are some of the best practices that counsel can use to effectively address community issues and balance the wide variety of user needs and interests?

Listen as our panel of real estate attorneys discusses the principal legal challenges facing developers, builders and the mixed-use development team when undertaking mixed-use projects. The panel will provide insights gained from recent deals on how to overcome the legal hurdles in order to best benefit from the opportunities mixed-use development can provide.
