On July 13, the Mayor's Housing Innovation Lab will host a workshop and informational session in partnership with the BSA Housing Committee to support the City of Boston's Additional Dwelling Unit Pilot Program. The Pilot Program seeks to streamline the process for homeowners looking to carve out a rental unit in their homes, along the way creating affordable housing options and generating rental income for homeowners. Through a miniature design charrette, the Lab and the BSA hope to generate design ideas and examples that will help homeowners visualize these additional units.

Please join the Housing Committee for a discussion on the Urban Housing Unit (uhü) as a viable solution for attainable city living. The panel will dissect the negative connotation of micro-units and explore evidence that not only are they an affordable option for low- to middle-income residents, they can be comfortable places to live in! This in-depth conversation with industry professionals will walk through the demographic metrics, zoning implications, and the construction technology that it would take to make Urban Housing Units a reality in the Boston area.

For those who qualify, 2 LUs are available.
