The Real Estate Challenge, NAIOP SFBA’s version of the Big Game, is a real estate development competition between legendary rivals Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley (Cal). The unique program is designed to give graduate students hands-on experience in real estate development. Teams are charged with devising and successfully pitching a solution to a complex real-world real estate problem. Participants embark on an intensive ten-week journey in which they engage with a large number of project sponsor representatives and city officials as well as real estate industry professionals for guidance and mentoring along the way. The COVID-19 pandemic raised the bar even higher on this year’s competition necessitating all presentations be conducted online.
NAIOP SFBA hosted an extremely important Zoom-In Webinar: How Will Prop 15 Impact California Commercial Real Estate, on Thursday, September 17th. The program featured Rex Hime, President and CEO of the California Business Properties Association (CBPA) which provides legislative advocacy for NAIOP in Sacramento. Hime explained the impact of Prop 15 which, if passed, will remove Prop 13’s property tax protection and will result in the largest property tax increase in history. He also provided an update on the work of the No On Prop 15 Campaign, a diverse bi-partisan coalition, and urged NAIOP members to get involved, NoOnProp15.org.
