Join NAIOP San Francisco for the 32nd Annual Real Estate Challenge, Thursday, April 29th as Cal faces off against Stanford for the coveted Golden Shovel. This year, the teams have been tasked with a development project for the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA). The site is located in San Jose between the Guadalupe River Trail and North First Street.


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.
