A Case Study of a Successful Development Project

MGM Springfield is a multi-use entertainment, retail, dining and resort complex that is transforming downtown Springfield.

This seminar will take a case-study approach to examine some of the critical issues that were successfully handled during development and construction, including:

  • Land acquisition, consolidation of parcels and zoning
  • Local and state permitting, including the interplay between the two
  • The use of G.L. c 121A — Urban Redevelopment Corporations
  • Coordination with the city of Springfield regarding logistics — access, transportation and utilities
  • The nature and structure of contracts to build the complex
  • The finished product — insider’s tour at the conclusion of the program

A reception will follow this program.
