  • GBCI Credit Hours: 1
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.

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 Denverthat 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.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify best practices in equitable and sustainable community development in ethnically and economically diverse communities.
  • Define roles and responsibilities as well as processes and procedures that public and private partners can partake in for successful equitable and sustainable community development.
  • Better advocate for tools and resources that support equitable and sustainable development in community.
  • Develop better community engagement methods that support civic dialogue from a diverse audience.
