Columbia GSAPP is pleased to announce that a team of students from the Master of Science in Real Estate Development Program comprised of Adriana Kassel-Hoffman, Alice Guo, Melanie Lacey, and Cora Visnick has placed third in the annual CASE Competition, the world’s leading real estate development case competition. Columbia GSAPP’s student team is the first all-female team to participate in the competition since it was founded in 2009 by the Alumni Association of the MIT Center for Real Estate.
The 2018 edition of the CASE Competition focused on a redevelopment site located in San Francisco on a boundary between the city’s historic port area and the Financial District. A total of 21 teams of 3-4 graduate students each were selected by a panel of distinguished industry professionals to compete live in the semifinal and final rounds before a panel of esteemed industry professionals and city representatives in San Francisco.
