How many times have you spotted an empty site and dreamt about developing it? And how many times have you given up because you didn't know where to start? Perhaps you couldn't track down the landowner or you didn't have the money? Many architects have built their own house, but few have made the leap to become a fully-fledged developer. Architects are in a strong position to release value from sites because their training means they can spot opportunities and creative solutions that a developer often misses. Featuring illustrated case studies and practical guidance, this is the first book aimed at the first-time architect developer that covers every stage of the development process, from finding land through to raising capital, understanding risk and marketing and selling.
