San José

Affordable by Design 101 - NEW DATE

Lunchtime Forum

This event was originally scheduled for February 13.

Compact, efficient housing without bells and whistles often rents for less without requiring a subsidy, and SPUR has advocated for more of this kind of housing in order to address the region’s ongoing housing shortage. Join us for a nuanced conversation on housing types that some consider more attainable or “affordable by design,” such as micro-units, in-law units and modular construction. Co-presented by ULI Silicon Valley.

+ Yes Duffy / David Baker Architects
+ Adam Marcus / San Jose Department of Housing
+ Jenny Nusbaum / San Jose Department of Planning, Building and Code Enforcement


free for SPUR and ULI members
$10 for non-members
