Furman Center Hosts Policy Breakfast on Transferable Development Rights
December 13, 2012 - The Furman Center hosted its second policy breakfast on the topic of transferable development rights (TDR), focusing on their role in achieving policy goals. Using two innovative ideas as the backdrop—one linked to affordable housing and the other to raising funds for landmarks–-the panel considered the advantages and disadvantages of loosening the rules governing the transfer of development rights; how to design new TDR programs so that they will be effective; and how to structure new TDR programs to co-exist with the broader city planning objectives for a neighborhood.
