Small Scale Development Workshop

Syracuse WorkshopFlyer + REVISED Schedule_Page_1.jpg

The City of Syracuse is offering a Small Scale Real Estate Development Workshop on June 27th.   The workshop offers specialized training about how to create small projects (typically 1-3 story buildings, less than 20 units, residential/commercial/ or mixed-use). 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 yourself or creating a supportive ecosystem for small development in your community. Scholarships are available. Click the Button below more information and to register!
