Nuts 'n Bolts of Affordable Housing: Finance, Form & Tenure

Nuts ‘n Bolts of Affordable Housing: Finance, Form & Tenure

Join us for our third installment to the 2017-18 Built City Series, a mini-charette on transit-oriented development in false creek south

Featuring guest speaker Bowinn Ma, MLA, Parliamentary Secretary for Translink, Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing, the Museum of Vancouver in partnership with RAIC-Architecture Canada is hosting a Mini-Charrette as part of the Built City series, exploring cost trade-offs of affordable housing and the tools used to create social connectedness through urban design. Urban designers and experts in creating non-subsidized affordable housing will lead hands-on, design-based, problem-solving charrette workshop tables, including what transit-oriented development (TOD) might look like with a possible streetcar line.

Thought Leader, Gloria Venczel, MRAIC from RAIC-Architecture Canada, will facilitate this Saturday afternoon workshop with markers, maps, tracing paper and proforma calculators, opening up the black box of finance. Participants will look at what the comparative cost & saving levers could be for creating affordable housing for the “missing middle” and how different forms of housing tenure can help.
