One-third of households in San Francisco spend more than 30% of their income on rent. In 2019, voters approved a $600-million affordable housing bond. Learn from a non-profit developer, an architect, and a landscape architect on how they leverage multilayered affordable housing partnerships to create impactful open spaces in San Francisco.

Join Mithun partner Anne Torney for “Affordable Housing as a Driver for Equitable Landscapes in San Francisco,” to learn about the unique and varied partnerships required to build affordable housing integrated with open space. The session will explore key objectives and constraints of affordable housing development, and explore strategies to blur boundaries between disciplines to elevate projects and communities.

Anne’s co-presenters include GLS Landscape | Architecture director Wendy Mok and Chinatown Community Development Center (CCDC) senior project manager Bo S. Han.
