|Selected students from the business schools of Chicago and Northwestern universities will compete in the Zell | Booth-Kellogg Real Estate Challenge. Historically, the Challenge topic has been a redevelopment proposal (often for a site owned by the City of Chicago); past sites have included properties located in areas such as: “Lakeside” (the former US Steel site), the proposed Olympic Village, the south loop, the "six corners," Bronzeville and the near West Side. These sites have lent themselves to a variety of proposed residential, retail and office uses. Each team - usually six to eight students (with a mix of full- and part-time students) - utilizes the spring quarter to hone their proposal and their presentation. Resources for these activities include interested faculty members as well as local practitioners familiar with various aspects (design, construction, leasing, financing, etc.) of the proposed project. The proposals are ultimately evaluated by a panel of external judges - one of whom is typically a City representative. These students typically find the experiential nature of the project to be intellectually rewarding as well as quite helpful when interviewing with prospective employers.|
