The 6th edition of this extremely popular and classic textbook has been updated to reflect ongoing changes in the field of property development. Attention is paid to the impact of the global financial crisis on the property development process and, in addition, to the increasing relevance of technology to the property profession.
Whilst the successful style and format of the text has been retained, new chapters have been added and existing chapters updated and enhanced to guide lecturers and students in their teaching, reading and studying. Other new features in this edition include:
- Fully updated discussion points and reflective summaries
- Examples of contemporary best practice based on international case studies covering the UK, USA and Australia
- New chapters on ‘Property Cycles’ and ‘Technology’
- Online materials for lecturers and students
This fully revised edition of a standard text for all property development and real estate students will also be of interest to early career professionals and those pursuing similar professional degrees in the industry and in wider built environment courses.

"The fact that Property Development has now reached its Sixth Edition suggests two things. First, while the fundamentals of the development process remain essentially unchanged, the contexts in which it is carried out are changing all the time, and this is well reflected in this new edition. The second is that the book, in going through so many editions, has proved to be a continuously valuable textbook for students studying the subject internationally. It provides both the basic concepts and enough depth to be useful at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels of study." Professor Peter Byrne, Henley Business School, University of Reading, UK
