Why Does Housing Cost So Much?

12:30 p.m. | Tuesday, May 30, 2017

In 2014, The Urbanist ran an article titled “The Real Cost of Building Housing,” which looked at the exorbitant cost of construction in San Francisco. Over the past three years, these costs have continued to escalate. Join our panel to hear how the situation has evolved and how it impacts efforts to address our housing shortage. Co-presented by SFHAC.
