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.
The NAIOP San Francisco Bay Area Real Estate Challenge was established in 1990 by Steve Chamberlin, a local developer and emeritus adjunct professor in real estate at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, to give graduate students hands-on experience in real estate development. Every year teams from University of California, Berkeley and Stanford University Graduate School of Business are assigned a project site and given just 60 days to come up with a development proposal. A select panel of jurors reviews both proposals in detail and chooses a winner after the final team presentations are presented at the annual NAIOP SFBA Real Estate Challenge event.
