PLACE’s EcoVillage development in St. Louis Park, MN includes multiple components: affordable and market-rate housing, an e-generation facility, live/work spaces, an urban forest, and a boutique hotel. Lenders often perceive multiple elements in a development as increasing risk, rather than distributing or managing risk. Students will analyze the multiple elements of the EcoVillage and provide recommendations to PLACE to better communicate to lenders the economic benefits and costs of their development proposal.
