Bridging the Gap: Strategies for Equitable Housing Access in Space-Constrained Cities

In NYC, vacant land is hard to come by. A growing population compounded by international migration has put New York at an inflection point: create more housing or exacerbate the homelessness crisis. Researchers at The Parsons School of Design are discovering the potential of locating modular micro-apartments, integrated with supportive services, on sites encumbered by years of predesign and entitlement processes. Based on preconstruction land leases, this model aims to bridge a critical gap in the "Continuum of Care" while optimizing development costs and unleashing the potential underutilized land for interim community benefit. Presented by ULI's Homeless to Housed Initiative.
