2013 Cityville Project

2013 Cityville Project was Glen Oak Crossings, a Walmart development in Oak Cliff area of Dallas
 
Two-Wins Foundation and Big Thought has teamed to launch the Cityville project, an after-school, educational program that teaches middle school students the fundamentals of real estate through a mock, ground-up development exercise mimicking real world activities such as forming an LLC, calculating project costs, understanding government relationships, architectural design, and construction phases. The long-term goal is to supplement traditional education with creative learning opportunities for under-represented and academically struggling children. Another goal is to increase awareness of careers in commercial real estate for these students. The pilot program was conducted and deemed successful during the 2010 school year. The Real Estate Council’s members will share their expertise with students in zoning, marketing, banking, architecture and construction.
