Solutions for Attainable City Living: Thinking Small

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.

Panelists:
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
Benjamin T. Downing PE, managing principal, DeSimone Consulting Engineers

For those who qualify, 2 LUs are available.
