Workshop Offers Tools for Small Scale Developers

Jul 14, 2019

On July 11, the Incremental Development Alliance hosted a one-day workshop in partnership with Near Southside, Inc. as part of the NSI Development Seminar Series.

The IDA is a national organization that works with small scale developers to give them the tools to invest in their own communities. They hold workshops around the country on small scale real estate development that give attendees the info they need to analyze what makes a good project, determine how a building makes money, and learn how small developers interact with the broader ecosystem of professionals. The sold-out Fort Worth seminar featured a session on market research, creating a sample pro forma, and tips on financing.

This workshop was made possible by a grant from LegacyTexas Bank and hosted by The Woman’s Club of Fort Worth. Additional sponsors included Bennett Benner Partners, Fort Construction, the City of Fort Worth, and the Community Design Center.
