Temperature checks will be conducted at entry.

Attendance at the event will be capped and no tickets will be sold at the door. 

Contact tracing procedures will be employed for any reported exposure.

Why This Matters

What You'll Learn:

  1. Where are new affordable housing developments going up in Boston and how does demand and price shift based on urban core vs. greater Boston?
  2. As tenants demand more affordable pricing and increased amenities, such as outdoor space and access to the local community, how will developers utilize the new 40B plan to address design concepts and supply issues?
  3. How will the $46M of local funding and President Biden's affordable housing plan impact how developers are creating and financing affordable housing?
  4. How can the redevelopment of old or unused buildings improve Boston's affordable housing outlook and what types of assets make the most sense to target?
  5. How is affordable housing expansion and the speed at which projects get approved impacted by local zoning?

 

How you'll do more business:

With increasing demand in Boston's tight affordable housing market, gain exclusive perspective into the upcoming project pipeline, what tenants are looking for, how local and national funding is impacting developers’ ability to create truly affordable housing, and the role that zoning plays in expanding and expediting affordable housing developments.
