Building for the Middle: Housing Greater Boston’s Workforce
As the Commonwealth increases investment in affordable and workforce housing development and preservation, ULI Boston/New England’s Housing and Economic Development Council —in conjunction the Metropolitan Area Planning Council— releases the full report Building for the Middle: Housing Greater Boston’s Workforce.
As Boston enjoys a surging reputation as a world-class city, it is struggling to create housing for a workforce, which is expected to grow by nearly 800,000 by the year 2030. According to our research, there is currently a significant shortage of homes to rent or own that are affordable for a family of four earning $75,000 or less a year.
If Metro Boston wants to build on its reputation of being a world-class city, the region must build housing to accommodate the growing workforce for the sake of equality and economic opportunity.
Join public and private sector leaders to discuss the implications of the report in building and preserving middle-income housing in the middle of a building boom.
