Super-tall luxury towers are the latest installation in the ongoing story of NY’s hot real-estate market…yet they threaten to rapidly gentrify their surroundings and displace long-time residents and businesses.
Join members of the Collective for Community, Culture, and Environment and other design and planning professionals to explore how community-led planning and policy development, urban design, legal and organizing strategies can shape the fight against rapid gentrification, segregation, and displacement – and offer beautiful, sustainable and equitable alternatives.
The panelists will share perspectives and proposals on the creation/preservation of affordability in NYC's hot markets – and how this could impact community planning nation-wide.
The panel discussion will be held at Pratt’s Higgins Hall in Brooklyn, designed by architect Steven Holl.
