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.  

About The CASE Competition
CASE is an annual real estate case competition that provides graduate real estate students an opportunity to compete, showcase their knowledge, and learn from each other through the process of creating a development program, preparing financial analyses, and structuring a purchase and/or joint-venture transaction for a complex real estate development project set against a backdrop of an actual, “real world” development (or redevelopment) site. The CASE Competition is organized and hosted by the newly formed CASE Collaborative, a consortium of preeminent real estate graduate programs including the Alumni Association of the MIT Center for Real Estate (AACRE), the Paul Milstein Center for Real Estate at Columbia Business School, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and the University of Cambridge.
