Stories of Impact



Urban neighborhoods, first ring suburbs and rural communities are at their best when their historic Main Street Districts pulse with developments that bring a community to life: residential, retail, entertainment, services and public spaces. Older districts have special opportunities for adaptive reuse—with buildings that are ideally suited to multiple uses (retail/office, residential/retail, etc.) in one structure. Understanding how to finance mixed-use development as a way to catalyze Main Street, energizing it with shopping, dining, culture and entertainment, is critical for communities. This course explores debt, equity and public/private financing tools available for Main Street redevelopment. Learn more
