“A single storefront can transform a street. A lovable building can lift a whole neighborhood. We have seen this and know that no hero is coming to build our places to their potential. We must do it ourselves.” ~ Incremental Development Alliance

The Small Scale Real Estate Development Workshop is coming to Orlando. This day-long session is designed to introduce the basics of neighborhood-based development and redevelopment projects.

The workshop offers specialized training about how to create small projects, like one- to three-story buildings with less than 20 units, which are residential, commercial or mixed use. The course assumes you know a lot about where you live, but not necessarily much about the real estate process or building development.

Through presentations on finance, design and site selection, a hands-on practice exercise, and networking with local like-minded people, this workshop is the first step to becoming a small developer or creating a supportive ecosystem for small development in your city.

The workshop is sponsored by the Incremental Development Alliance, a national non-profit that works to build local wealth in neighborhoods through ground-up real estate development, along with Canin Family Foundation and the Orange County/Pine Hills Neighborhood Improvement District.
