About the Case Competition

Expand Your Empire (EYE) 2017 is the 3rd installment of Real Estate Ryerson’s annual real estate development case competition. EYE brings together the most talented and innovative students in real estate. Students are challenged to redefine the built environment, and are given the opportunity to showcase their talents to industry leaders.

Teams of 4 undergraduate students will be assigned an underutilized site from the current real estate market, and are given a week to analyze, design and create the best-use development proposal, including financials, sustainable features, renderings, and market analysis. Teams will then come to Toronto on March 4th to present their proposals to a diverse panel of judges, made up of leaders from all areas of the real estate industry.

For the first time ever, EYE 2017 will feature students from across North America, including:
