The subject APL 350 focuses on the procedural aspects of developing and implementing construction projects; preparation of detailed development plans and the use of Direction regulations and development agreements. The course goes through various means of implementation of plans and project ideas, and puts planning's instruments against market forces and incentives for the development of real estate projects.
