March 3, 2011: Furman Center Faculty Co-Director Ingrid Gould Ellen moderated a panel at the NYU Abu Dhabi Institute on “Housing Middle Income Households in High-Cost Cities.”  The panel discussed how the increase in income inequality over the past two decades has contributed to higher housing costs.  Additionally, the panel noted that middle income households often get left out because they do not qualify for government housing programs and cannot afford housing due to the rising costs.  Panelists included Talal Al Dhiyebi, Director of Planning and Infrastructure at Aldar Properties, and Val Zillig, Planning Manager at Urban Planning Council.
