The Connecticut Housing Coalition is presenting this two-day training on mixed-use development:

Neighborhoods are at their best when “Main Street” pulses with the activities that bring a community alive–residential, retail, entertainment, services , public facilities and common areas.  Older Main Streets have special opportunities for adaptive reuse — with buildings that are ideally suited to retrofitting multiple uses in one structure.  Cities and towns undergoing redevelopment as a way to catalyze Main Street, energizing it with shopping, dining, culture and entertainment.  There are several financial tools available for Main Street redevelopment and if brought together in the right way, for the right uses, they can do the job.

Special topics will include:
*  Mixed-use development challenges,
*  Inventory:  What do you have to work with,
*  Thinking outside the box for adaptive re-use,
*  The real estate financing process,
*  Mixed financing:  finding the right recipe,
*  Quantifying the financing gap/closing the gap,
*  Financing tools for mixed-use development,
*  Historic tax credit, LIHTC and NMTC, and
*  How to fill the commercial space.

Who should attend: Those who are new to mixed-use development and those who anticipate mixed use in their future portfolio.    Click here to register.
