The NIMBY Subject Matter

In his bestselling books, Patrick Slevin unveils the Not-In-My-Backyard (NIMBY) phenomenon: a widely known, but vaguely understood threat to proposed real estate development projects. For decades, NIMBY conflicts have cost executives, investors, and land-development professionals billions of dollars in losses caused by project delays, disruptions, and defeats.

For too long, applicants have felt powerless to reduce the risks of NIMBY, hoping their projects will “fly under the radar” and avoid attracting the anger of neighbors or the angst of professional activists. This passive engagement directly empowers the opposition not only to demonize real estate development proposals, but also to damage corporate reputations. It ends all too often in project defeat.

Eventually, the NIMBY hits the fan, unexpectedly, rapidly, and aggressively triggering a series of high-profile conflicts leading to the political defeat of thousands of sustainable real estate projects.
