Breakout Session: Deal Structuring: Beyond the Environmental

Date and Time

This session will investigate how a redevelopment deal actually happens—after the environmental concerns are addressed. According to a recent study, brownfields projects have on average 14 different funding sources.  Assembling different sources and different “kinds” of money is essential to any redevelopment project.  How does a deal get funded?  What drives the deal?  The answers to these questions, real world examples of how to structure deals, including public-private partnership will be answered by a panel of legal experts and redevelopment dealmakers.
