Urban Land Institute Fall Conference
101 Constitution Tour
In October, all 39 students of Clemson University’s Master of Real Estate Development program attended the Urban Land Institute’s Fall Conference held in Washington, D.C. As a part of the trip, students were given an exclusive opportunity to tour one of Washington’s premier office buildings, 101 Constitution. 101 Constitution offers unobstructed views of the U.S. Capitol and National Mall and is considered a “Trophy Class” office building. It is the closest privately owned property to the U.S. Capitol. This fabulous facility consists of approximately 500,000 net rentable square feet, 10 floors above grade, one level below grade, and four levels of underground parking. The building was constructed of poured-in-place concrete with an exterior skin of Canadian limestone. Designed by the Shalom Baranes Associates and built by Clark Construction, 101 Constitution boasts a well-diversified tenant base that includes prominent firms such as Goldman Sachs, Altria, Exelon, Entergy, and Charlie Palmer’s Steakhouse. The building commands some of the highest rents in the D.C. market.
The MRED tour of 101 Constitution began in the building’s magnificent two-story lobby. Randy Sowell, Director of Real Estate for the building’s owner, the United Brotherhood of Carpenters, led the tour for the MRED students. Mr. Sowell described to the students, in detail, the tremendous array of issues and stories of the building’s development, including obtaining an Act of Congress. The building also had the somewhat unique requirement of having to be approved by both federal jurisdictions and the District of Columbia. Through an interactive question and answer session, the students were able to gain tremendous insight into issues such as the entitlement process, design, construction, and lease structure of the building. The tour concluded on the building’s magnificent rooftop terrace which provided extraordinary views of the Capitol and an opportunity for students and professors to interact with Mr. Sowell and his staff. 101 Constitution is truly representative of the interdisciplinary nature of real estate development and provided a unique case study for the Clemson MRED students.

National Multi Housing Council Tour
Also while at ULI in Washington, D.C., Clemson University’s Master of Real Estate Development students were offered the opportunity to sit down for a roundtable discussion with the leading multifamily lobbying firm, the National Multi Housing Council. Richard Levy, the Director of Research, and Doug Bibby, the President, led the presentation.
Both a formal slide show as well as a question and answer period were incorporated into the presentation, however, it was the informal nature of the presenters who took the time to give their own opinions on the industry that made this such a valuable opportunity for the students and professors in attendance. Doug Bibby’s optimistic view of the market was particularly exciting for second year students looking to enter the world of multifamily development and investment. While it remained clear that real estate as a whole still has challenges to overcome, it was great to hear an expert in the field who felt optimistic about the future of multifamily. The ability to sit down with the leading multifamily lobbying firm and gain market prospective as well as insights into how they generate and use their statistics made the presentation by the National Multi Housing Council a great experience for Clemson University’s MRED students.Written by MRED Class of '11 student Dan Driscoll
