20 Credits SPRING

Pre-requisites: TRP210

Aims/Description: This module explores the interrelationship between planning, design and development profitability. It examines the structure of real estate markets, the roles and objectives of the various stakeholders involved in the development process and the main aspects of development appraisal. At the same time, the module introduces the physical dimensions of urban planning and considers the urban design process and proposals for improving urban space. Students will work towards producing a development proposal that balances profitability with good design and in doing so, will learn to balance the competing demands of planning, design and real estate markets.
