New reviews on Urban Blog

Built Up book cover

Book review: Built Up: An Historical Perspective on the Contemporary Principles and Practices of Real Estate Development reviewed by Richard Harris

"Built Up is a curiosity. Two types of book have been written about real estate. There are course texts, designed for aspiring professionals, and there are academic assessments of the process and/or outcome of land development. The former, exemplified by the series that Ronald Racster has written or co-authored, cover the nuts and bolts and are neutral or positive in tone. The latter, whether empirical or theoretical in character, pay more attention to the consequences and are almost invariably critical. Built Up tries to bridge the two."
