Additional topics include development history, zoning, tax laws, equity investments, LEED, sustainable development, and appraisal techniques. Emphasis is placed on the application of economic analysis to the senior design projects. The instructor may arrange guest lectures and tours throughout the quarter. (prereq: AE 3431  or CM 3013 )
