As I've mentioned before, each year in Land Planning and Development, I place the students into small groups where they each "develop" a real piece of land here in Montgomery. The topics they deal with over the course of the semester include basic title work, purchase negotiations, environmental issues, historical property issues, zoning, entitlements, and even an analysis of real estate advertising and marketing issues.
The property used is known as the "Semester Parcel" (yes, I know...my creative apex when it comes to clever names is very low).
I've placed an image of the parcel from Google Earth below. The Semester Parcel is actually the undeveloped triangular parcel adjacent to the Alabama River. It's an ideal piece of property for this semester long simulation as it is filled with access challenges and potential environmental questions.
Plus, it is really being developed beginning later this fall.
