Join us for a conversation on how we can improve neighborhoods through design, moderated by The Architect's Newspaper Editor-in-Chief William Menking. The brand-new edition of our Laying the Groundwork design guidelines will debut!
In the coming decade, thousands of new mixed-use affordable housing developments created through Mayor de Blasio’s Housing New York plan will transform the cityscape. With the power of good design, this unprecedented building boom can help foster vibrant, mixed-income neighborhoods and attractive, fully leased commercial corridors.
Laying the Groundwork, developed by the Design Trust for Public Space and our Fellows in partnership with the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development (NYC HPD), is a comprehensive set of guidelines for high-quality ground-floor design in mixed-use affordable housing developments.
