Fall 2021: Addressing the Housing Shortage

This edition of On Common Ground explores housing production from all angles and discusses a range of approaches we can take at all levels of government and the private sector, that show promise to produce the housing we need more quickly and cost effectively, such as local zoning fixes; niche strategies to provide housing for those who wish to age-in-place; adaptive reuse of office space and parking structures; and technological advances in building construction.

In This Issue
