Transitioning to Acquisitions/Development (GP) from CRE Lending

Hey WSO - after ~2 years doing balance sheet lending in a Tier I city, I've been fortunate to secure an associate role at a GP working on acquisitions and development in said city. I have a few weeks before I start and was wondering if anyone has made a similar transition.

Specifically: How exactly will my job differ from a REPE shop on the LP side (say, at a large asset manager)? Understand that this will be more on the ground, but any insight or advice is very appreciated!
