Summary expansion
  • University-based land development is becoming a significant element of urban formation. Yet there is little information available to explain the significance of the university presence in urban development and enhance the state of practice. This is the first book to explore the role of university as developer. It offers a rich array of case studies and analyses that clarify the important roles that universities play in the growth and development of cities. The cases describe a host of university practices, community responses, and policy initiatives surrounding university real estate development-from building neighborhood relations to innovative leasing and finance arrangements. The concluding chapter summarizes the volume's important lessons and best practices
  • University-based property development is an important element of urban formation. Yet there is little information available to explain the significance of the university presence in urban development and enhance the state of the practice. Integrating topics in urban development, real estate, higher education administration, urban design, and campus landscape architecture, this is the first book to explore the role of the university as developer. Accessible and clearly written, and including contributions from authorities in a wide range of related areas, it offers a rich array of case studies and analyses that clarify the important roles that universities play in the growth and development of cities. The cases describe a host of university practices, community responses, and policy initiatives surrounding university real estate development. Through a careful blending of academic analysis and practical, hands-on administrative and political information, the book charts new ground in the study of the university and the city
