Clemson’s Real Estate Development Program to relocate to Greenville

August 21, 2013

PICKENS COUNTY — Clemson’s graduate program in real estate development will relocate this fall from the Clemson campus to Clemson at the Falls in downtown Greenville.

The move was announced last week by Richard Goodstein, dean of the College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities at Clemson.

Relocating to the Clemson at the Falls campus is the first step in Clemson MRED’s two-part move to Greenville. The program will make its final move to the ONE Building, Greenville’s newest mixed-use hub on the corner of Main and Washington streets downtown, in early 2014.

In the ONE Building, the MRED program will join programs from Clemson’s College of Business and Behavioral Science, including the Master of Business Administration program.

“The move to downtown Greenville offers an opportunity for Clemson MRED to continue to grow and create greater local, regional and national awareness,” said Robert Benedict, MRED program director. “The new location also provides a more urban and dynamic setting for our students, creating a ‘living lab’ due to the amount of significant real estate development currently underway in Greenville.”
