The webinar briefing, which will take place on Wednesday, April 18th from 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET, will present the NYU Furman Center’s latest findings on small unit housing as a strategy to address affordable housing challenges.

An NYU Furman Center working paper and accompanying policy brief, released in January 2018 (see the press release), explore the potential demand for smaller, cheaper units to help address New York City’s affordable housing need. The research considers the economics of building and operating small units, and models their financial feasibility. It concludes by analyzing the main barriers to the creation of small units that exist in New York City and suggesting possible reforms that New York City can make to address these barriers.

This webinar briefing will include a presentation of research findings and walk through the author’s policy recommendations to remove barriers to constructing small unit housing in New York City. The webinar is free and open to the public; advance registration is required.
