On Thursday, September 28th, DC associate Eamon Lorincz moderated a panel entitled, “Strategies for the Preservation of Affordable Housing in the Global City”. The program focused on the increasing unaffordability of residential real estate in major U.S. cities and the state and local regulatory programs targeted to maintaining affordability, including in particular rent control (in New York) and the tenant opportunity to purchase act (TOPA) and inclusionary zoning (in DC). The panelists were Jim Campbell, a DC-based developer with extensive experience with affordable and market rate housing, Ellen McCarthy, a former director of the DC Office of Planning, and Cezary Podkul, an award-winning public-interest journalist based in New York.
Klein Hornig LLP was one of three sponsors for this event, which will took place from 6:00 – 8:30 pm at Goulston & Storrs PC, 1999 K Street NW, Washington DC 20006.
