The American Architectural Foundation will feature 3 catalytic organizations and affiliated projects redefining sustainability within their community's development framework:
- Asian Community Development Corporation's One Greenway - a multi-lingual initiative that produced a mixed-use LEED Silver infill development supplying much needed affordable housing and revitalizing a blighted area within Boston's Chinatown that better connects residents to transit and the surrounding city;
- Urban Land Conservancy's East Rail Line Corridor project in Denver that engaged multiple public and private stakeholders to re-establish connections to transit for an older industrial neighborhood while recognizing opportunities for mixed-use, multi-family development;
- Community Solutions' Swift Factory Community Hub Development -a rehabilitated metallurgic factory that houses local production and training for food growing and preparation, green building construction, and health-related businesses and activities for Northeast Hartford residents.
Project lead's from each organization will share their unique challenges and opportunities of their design and development processes, including financing of affordable units with access to transit, creating access to healthy food, and rehabilitating existing buildings and infilling with context sensitive designs on blighted sites as well as identify how these projects now serve as models for equitable community development in their regions.
This is a self-reporting series. You will receive a certificate of attendance yet you need to self-report your own continuing education credits to GBCI, etc.
