Discussion "Space for Potential: Weaving Affordability and Green Design"
Wednesday, July 07 2010
Especially in these economic times, affordable housing is a sector of real estate that continues to be built in New York City and has become a bigger focus across the country. One shining example of a new affordable housing development is Tapestry, a mixed-income, green residential building with a ground floor commercial space in East Harlem developed by Jonathan Rose Companies.
No Longer Empty, in collaboration with the newly formed Columbia University's GSAPP Alumni Association and the Columbia University Affordable Housing Group, invite you to visit Tapestry for a cocktail reception and panel discussion exploring the affordable housing, architecture, and the impact of green design on local communities.
