The Charlotte Development tour for MRED 1st year students is an annual Clemson MRED program tradition. Over two days, February 21-22, 2013, MRED students had the opportunity to visit Ballantyne, with Howard Bissell of The Bissell Companies, Blakeney with Peter B. Pappas of Crosland Southeast, Plaza Midwood with Jack Levinson of Lat Purser & Associates, South Church Apartments with Dave Chandler of Faison & Associates, a tour of South End and NoDa with Frank Warren of Kimley-Horn, Brightwalk with Emma Littlejohn of The Littlejohn Group, LLC and a neighborhood tour with MRED '07 alum Charlie Rulick of The Development Studio, LLC. The tour itinerary included visits, neighborhood drive through tours, and presentations by some of the region’s leading developers, planning officials and institutional investors. Students were also invited to a reception and dinner as part of the annual meeting of the Carolinas SIOR chapter. The Charlotte Tour is a great networking opportunity for MRED students and helps students to make new contacts for internships and permanent positions.
