Fresh Capital, Fresh Ideas
Yale Alumni Real Estate Association National Conference
The Yale Alumni Real Estate Association (Yale AREA) and the International Center for Finance at the Yale School of Management are pleased to present a national real estate conference, Fresh Capital, Fresh Ideas, on April 4, 2014.
The conference, which has convened annually at Yale since 2008, provides alumni, students, and faculty a chance to engage with leading thinkers in real estate and the built environment—and with one another. The purpose of the conference is broader than simply “an industry gathering.” Instead, it is a venue to focus on new ideas and trends shaping a field that has a potent impact on the fabric of our communities.
This year, the conference has drawn an exciting slate of speakers, both distinguished academics and practitioners, from as far away as Shanghai and San Francisco. The conference will take up topics including: the future of cities; asset pricing; new models for living and working; perspectives of international investors in the U.S.; and “crowd-funding” models for real estate.
We ask that you register immediately as space is limited. The deadline for online registration is Friday, March 21, 2014.
The Conference is open to Yale alumni, faculty, students, and administrators. While priority will be given to members of the Yale community, guests who are sponsored by a member of the Yale community (also attending the conference), will be wait-listed and admitted (in the priority of their registration) based on availability.

Forest City is transforming an abandoned rifle factory that was once the economic engine of Newhallville through a $54 million historic rehab project that will result in 158 apartments, 20% of which will be affordable, government subsidized housing. The project started construction in the summer of 2013.
Take a closer look at the Yale School of Management’s new home. Hear from the project managers and architects that made it all possib.
