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.

Max Stearns, program manager, Mayor’s Housing Innovation Lab
Addison Godine, founder, LiveLight, designed and built the uhü
Jenny and Anda French, principals, French2d
Mark Erlich, executive secretary-treasurer, NERCC
