The Enterprise Policy Development & Research (PD&R) team released its new report on Overcoming Barriers to Bringing Off-Site Construction to Scale at Enterprise’s 10th annual Affordable Housing Design Leadership Institute (AHDLI) in Cleveland, Ohio.
In Cleveland, Enterprise has worked hard using the Enterprise Rose Fellowship and the Institute, among other powerful tools, to make sure that well-designed affordable homes have ripple effects throughout the community.

Building on the Enterprise Publicly Owned Parcels research initiative, this is a case study that addresses six challenges associated with the publicly owned parcel development process in the region, with the goal of providing recommendations that would help the region’s public agencies expand their efforts to coordinate and ensure that effective policies and adequate resources are in place to facilitate more equitable development.
Hopefully, it is that there is always room for better design. No matter the constraints, which we know and understand well, developers of affordable housing can and should be empowered to make better designed buildings that are able to meet the needs of their residents.
What serendipitous timing is was to learn, as we prepare for the 8th annual Affordable Housing Design Leadership Institute (AHDLI) next week in Boston, that Marion West, a development project of Seattle-based Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) that was brought to the 2012 AHDLI at Parsons School of Design had recently won the Gold Nugget Award Grand Prize for Best Residential Project for 2017 (attached housing) and the Best Affordable Housing Award (for projects 100 du/or more) from the Pacific Coast Builders Conference.
