School Days

Students from HBS gathered across from the construction site

Yesterday, Harvard Business School students visited the new Charlesview construction site as part of their Real Property course taught by Housing expert Arthur Segel.  The students enjoyed a tour of the construction site, learned about the site plan and urban planning principles shaping the development, heard the story of how the deal came about, and walked through the basics of the development’s finances.

The mixed-finance, mixed-income, mixed-use development taking shape at Charlesview is in many ways more complex than a typical real estate development.  It provided a fantastic opportunity for bright young leaders at the global institution to engage with and learn from this exciting development taking place right in their own neighborhood.

We hope to have next year’s class back to see a finished rental development and a new phase of townhomes under construction.
