    Excellent real-life view of the process

    I am currently working as a consultant on a large scale biotech/retail and housing development. This book spells out issues, concerns, recommendations, and insights succinctly, in an easy to find format, with great sample RFPs and Qs. The flow charts are great, and there are few real estate resources that adequately address the unique challenges of large scale public private partnerships. It may be a bit dated (may 2000), and only includes a subset of the types of partnerships out there (little about housing).
