Affordable Housing

Living in New York City, I’ve lost touch with the concept of affordable housing. However, after competition finalists were announced for an affordable student housing complex [1] in the historic center of Athens, Greece, I felt inspired to seek out other exciting developments in the world of affordable design.

Jetson Green [2] reports on net-zero energy homes [3] nestled into an idyllic setting among evergreen trees and grasses.

gbNYC [4] tells us that Connecticut is getting its first LEED-certified residential building [5] that also happens to be the first affordable housing developing in downtown Hartfood. Woot!

And I am having mixed feelings about Curbed [6] that Milstein Properties exporting their affordable housing development [7] to Bronx and Staten Island.
