The Redevelopment Rodeo

It’s opportunity to wrangle your rarest or rowdiest redevelopment projects with seasoned Redevelopment Wranglers who’ve wrestled with the biggest brownfield beasts. The Redevelopment Wranglers know the long, hard trail to highest and best results in today’s market. These multidisciplinary professionals will be able to examine your project, point out hidden possibilities and pitfalls and provide industry-best technical know-how. Armed by best practices and tested strategies, the Redevelopment Wranglers can help you herd your stakeholders, corral your more complicated critters and overcome roadblocks on your route to revitalization.

Who: The Redevelopment Rodeo application is meant for any stakeholder involved in a brownfield redevelopment project.

Why: The Redevelopment Rodeo gives stakeholder-presenters an opportunity to explain tough projects while soliciting advice and solutions from a panel of experts at no cost.
