Dubai: The Transformation Of A Landscape, Ali Daye

Cornell Real Estate Review

When the Baker Program visited Dubai for its annual international trek, a sense of welcoming was ever present. This was no surprise as Dubai has sought to open itself up to the world since the 1990s when the ruling Maktoum family made decisions that would chart the future course for the Emirate.

Amazon's Impact On The Seattle Office Market, Dustin Dunham

Cornell Real Estate Review

The 2019 Baker Program Class trip to Seattle was an eye-opening experience. Among the biggest surprises was the dominance of Amazon within the city. As we met with developers, alumni and even Uber drivers, everyone was talking about the company’s impact on the growth of the community. According to CoStar, Amazon is the dominant space user in the Seattle office market, accounting for almost 45% of all the gross leasable class A office space. Amazon occupies more office space than the city’s next 40 biggest employers combined.

Multifamily Reits: Columbia's Opportunity To Attract Foreign Capital, Juan Brito 2018 Cornell University

Multifamily Reits: Columbia's Opportunity To Attract Foreign Capital, Juan Brito

Cornell Real Estate Review

The real estate market in Colombia has been very active during the past decade. Government spending through a free housing initiative and the stable and favorable political environment have incentivized capital flow into the country. All asset classes have benefited from the investments. Commercial real estate developments have taken advantage of this economic growth, but the residential market has been the strongest as an average of 230,000 units have been built and sold every year since 2013. Colombia still has room for residential expansion. Housing shortage is close to 4 million homes and it is estimated that 35% of ...

You Need To Be In Williamsburg: A Case Study Of Redsky Capital's Redbridge Development, Paul Heydweiller, Mark Hughes, Philip Tapia

Cornell Real Estate Review

By the spring of 2012, the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn had already seen a dramatic transformation from an historically industrial riverfront district to one of the trendiest residential areas in New York’s five boroughs. The lingering effects of the Great Recession continued to stymie retailer confidence on a broad basis, but sophisticated retailers were once again beginning to plan expansions. RedSky Capital’s Ben Bernstein and Ben Stokes had been talking with the owner of a portfolio of contiguous storefronts encompassing an entire block along Bedford Avenue for five years, forming a strategy to redevelop the properties. RedSky’s ...


Looking Beyond Leed: How The Un Sustainable Development Goals Can Provide An Alternative Framework For Sustainability In Hotels, Grant Behnke 2018 Cornell University

Looking Beyond Leed: How The Un Sustainable Development Goals Can Provide An Alternative Framework For Sustainability In Hotels, Grant Behnke

Cornell Real Estate Review

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification program of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) has been the path of many hotel industry professionals, particularly owners and real estate developers, wishing to demonstrate a commitment to environmental sustainability. LEED certification offers a framework for hotel industry stakeholders to pursue structurally and mechanically efficient buildings with eco-friendly components and unlock the accompanying financial benefits (USGBC, 2018). New evidence suggests, however, that LEED certification’s structure-centric, prescriptive scorecard may be misaligned with the day-to-day operational complexity of hotels (Behnke, 2017). In the wake of the United Nations’ call for ...


Steering Enterprise: How The Real Estate Community And Government Can Work Together To Modernize The Country's Maritime Infrastructure, Chris Trahan 2018 Cornell University

Steering Enterprise: How The Real Estate Community And Government Can Work Together To Modernize The Country's Maritime Infrastructure, Chris Trahan

Cornell Real Estate Review

Industrial real estate in the U.S. is experiencing the one of the longest and strongest expansions on record. The expansion is being fueled by e-commerce companies such as Amazon, and the trend is likely to increase as retailers and logistics services focus on improving last mile delivery. Despite analysts’ optimistic forecasts for industrial real estate, however, U.S. state and federal policy makers have not adequately invested in the country’s maritime and intermodal infrastructure in preparation for either the increased traffic e-commerce has facilitated, or the expansion of the Panama Canal (Economist, 2013). Congress can aid the expansion ...

Residential Housing Renewable Energy Savings Calculator, Eric J. Robinson 2018 Loyola Marymount University

Residential Housing Renewable Energy Savings Calculator, Eric J. Robinson

Honors Thesis

Frequently renewable energy investment has been thwarted by principal-agent disconnects. Chief among these is the disconnect in the rental market between tenants and landlords; whereby, the tenant may desire to invest in renewable energy sources but has no means to. An additional disconnect occurs between homeowners and their utilities providers. This study seeks to explore the disconnect between tenants and landlords and better align their motivations through intelligent contract design for sustainable investment. If renewable energy is proven profitable as a long-term investment, landlords will be more apt to invest and collect an energy/utility fee included in the cost ...


The Rise Of Bedford Stuyvesant: A Gentrification Case Study, Jerome Fratello 2018 Lehigh University

The Rise Of Bedford Stuyvesant: A Gentrification Case Study, Jerome Fratello

Eckardt Scholars Projects

Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn is undergoing a socio-economic transformation, as surging interest from wealthy consumer segments creates pent- up demand for a limited supply of apartments, condominiums, and townhouses. (Hill and Rabig) The African American population of Bedford Stuyvesant has decreased from 75% to 60% in less than a decade. This research paper investigates the extent to which gentrification in Bedford Stuyvesant has caused displacement, or whether rising home prices have begun to create generational wealth for the mainstay, minority population. In this manner, the neighborhood of Bedford Stuyvesant is used to frame a study of gentrification and its effect on ...


Assessment Limits And Timing Of Real Estate Transactions, Sebastien J. Bradley 2018 Drexel University

Assessment Limits And Timing Of Real Estate Transactions, Sebastien J. Bradley

Sebastien J Bradley

Michigan homebuyers face large potential discontinuities in property tax obligations for purchases made around January 1 and May 1 under the state's application of acquisition-value based assessment limits and principal residence (homestead) exemptions, respectively.  Consistent with incentives, roughly 3.7 percent of sales concluded in the first 10 business days of January are thus attributable to timing responses among the subset of properties listed by the largest 25 percent of firms by sales volume.  Underlying this effect is a willingness to stretch the number of days between contract and closing dates by an average of 2 to 4 business ...

Implications Of Social Media Use On Instruction And Student Learning: An Exploratory Study, Mayur Desai, Lucy Ojode

Southwestern Business Administration Journal

Despite being a norm in contemporary organizations including in academia, there is limited understanding how multimedia technology use might impact learning. We have also seen a rise in the use of social media applications such as Facebook, tweeter, Instagram, skype, flickr, and blogging among students, but it is unclear the extent to which the academe embraces these applications. In this study, we examine the potential role of multimedia technology and social media use in the learning process. We explore the potential implications for instruction and on student learning of the marriage between multimedia technology and social media use. Focusing on ...


Leveraging Decision Making In Cyber Security Analysis Through Data Cleaning, Chen Zhong, Hong Liu, Awny Alnusair 2018 Indiana University Kokomo, Indiana

Leveraging Decision Making In Cyber Security Analysis Through Data Cleaning, Chen Zhong, Hong Liu, Awny Alnusair

Southwestern Business Administration Journal

Security Operations Centers (SOCs) have been built in many institutions for intrusion detection and incident response. A SOC employs various cyber defense technologies to continually monitor and control network traffic. Given the voluminous monitoring data, cyber security analysts need to identify suspicious network activities to detect potential attacks. As the network monitoring data are generated at a rapid speed and contain a lot of noise, analysts are so bounded by tedious and repetitive data triage tasks that they can hardly concentrate on in-depth analysis for further decision making. Therefore, it is critical to employ data cleaning methods in cyber situational ...

First Quarter 2018: Introducing Our Gateway Cities Index, Crocker H. Liu, Adam D. Nowak, Robert M. White Jr

Cornell Real Estate Market Indices

Hotels in gateway cities have outperformed hotels in non-gateway cities, with hotels in gateway locations rising 10 percent in the past year, compared to 6 percent for those in non-gateway cities.

  • Hotel operating performance scaled by price is still in the black based on economic value analysis (EVA), with returns continuing to exceed borrowing costs (for debt).
  • Transaction volume strengthened both on a quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year basis.
  • While our various pricing metrics point to continued positive price momentum for larger hotels at the expense of smaller hotels, we are concerned whether rising interest rates will put a damper on this ...
