Innovations in Housing Affordability

As we emerge from the aftermath of the pandemic, Metro-Boston’s supply of affordable housing continues to lag behind. Even after the economic expansion era from 2009 to early 2020, Greater Boston didn’t build enough homes to keep up with demand. Seniors and families with children face an uphill climb when finding homes that meet their size and income needs. How will the affordable middle find its way into our lexicon of housing offerings?

Two well-known affordable housing client experts, Laura Martin from The Community Builders and Eliza Datta, of E3 Development, come to the BSA Client Conversations to share their latest innovations for tackling our region’s challenging economics and strategies for the future and how communities might start thinking differently about the economics and the housing offerings that the AEC industry needs to help provide. They are joined by the ‘Mother of the Micro Unit’, former BSA President Tamara Roy, to discuss their creative approaches to finance, design, and community engagement.

Join us for early networking prior to the conversation.

The BSA Client Conversation Series spotlights clients with not only their projects but their strategies for managing change through development and investment during these complex times. Conversations will span a range of market sectors, and provide insight into the capabilities and skills clients look for when selecting a design team. Join for networking, presentations on important issues and projects in Boston, and of course, conversations. SMPS Boston Members receive the BSA Member rate using promo code: SMPSCC2021
