Sustainable High Density Affordable Housing: The New York Story 

01-24-2012 18:49

On this 02/16/2012 webinar, a panel will explore innovative approaches to sustainable, high density, affordable housing in New York City through case studies and will examine the AIA New York Chapter's advocacy for affordable urban housing through the New Housing New York (NHNY) Project. The panel will demonstrate how architects contribute to improving the urban environment through design, professional advocacy and civic engagement. The case studies include two projects: the Fortune Castle Gardens, a new 113 unit mixed-use affordable housing development in Harlem and Via Verde, the Green Way, a new 222 unit mixed use, mixed income development in the South Bronx and winner of the NHNY Legacy competition. Both projects are partnerships between private and non-profit developers; both are key elements in the revitalization of urban neighborhoods; and both are designed to achieve LEED-NC Gold certification. Rick Bell FAIA, Executive Director of the AIA New York Chapter, will moderate the panel. Mark Ginsberg FAIA and William Stein FAIA will present the case studies with detailed descriptions of sustainable strategies. The panel will review the New Housing New York Project, which the AIA New York Chapter initiated to promote affordable urban housing, and discuss how NHNY helped frame public policy for New York City's ambitious affordable housing program.

At the speaker's request, the webinar was not recorded.
