                    from Center for Architecture / Added

                    Mandatory Inclusionary Housing: Issues and Opportunities at the Building Level The Mayor plans to implement mandatory inclusionary housing as part of his housing plan to create 80,000 new units and to preserve 120,000 existing units of affordable housing. The panel will discuss how alternative inclusionary housing policies and concerns affect the central issue: how to deliver the most numbers of units of affordable housing— and how are strategies affected by issues such as Ownership vs Rental, Separate Doors vs Separate Buildings vs Separate Sites, Single-use vs Mixed-use Buildings, and Differing Socio-Economic Contexts? This building-focused panel is the second of two events. It will look at ongoing projects that are facing this challenge. The first event on 11/24 will focuses on a community planning-based case study and related issues. Panelists Include: Ethel Sheffer, FAICP, Principal, Insight Associates; Member, Community Board 7 Josiah Madar, Research Affiliate, NYU Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy Gary Handel, AIA, Handel Architects LLP Ed Wallace Esq., Greenberg Traurig, LLP Moderators: Mark Ginsberg, FAIA, LEED AP, Partner, Curtis + Ginsberg Architects Ernie Hutton, FAICP, Assoc AIA, Principal, Hutton Associates Inc.; Co-Chair, AIANY Planning and Urban Design Committee Organized by: AIANY Planning and Urban Design Committee, AIANY Housing Committee, AIANY Codes Committee, and APA Metro Chapter

                      from Center for Architecture / Added

                      From the community planning perspective, how can we maximize the planning objectives of mixed-income, mixed-density, and equity? How are strategies affected by issues such as available land, community concerns, market considerations, and development economics? How can the City initiative to create thousands of units of affordable housing dovetail with neighborhood community-based planning to create a genuine collaborative process? This topic, on both a philosophical and a practical level, is very important right now as policies and programs to create 80,000 new units and to preserve 120,000 existing units of affordable housing are being put in place. The NYC Department of City Planning has made East New York, Brooklyn, a priority pilot program. This low-income community planning case study and panel is the first of two events. The second event (on 12/15/14) will focus on affordable housing within a market rate Manhattan-based building complex. Speakers: Winston von Engel, Director, NYC Department of City Planning Brooklyn Office Shai Lauros, Director of Community Development, Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation Adam Weinstein, President and CEO, Phipps Houses Max Weselcouch, Director, Moelis Institute for Affordable Housing Policy, NYU Furman Center Moderators: Ethel Sheffer, FAICP, Principal, Insight Associates Ernie Hutton, Assoc.
