Podcast: What’s Hindering Affordable Housing Construction
- Aug 08, 2019
A recent National Apartment Association survey ranked metro areas by relative ease of developing new apartments. The organization’s Director of Industry, Research and Analysis, Paula Munger, presents details about the barriers that impede the construction of more affordable housing projects across the country.
In this first podcast of Multi-Housing News‘ latest series, Munger talks about markets that have the fewest and the most barriers to construction, while also pointing out a couple of metros as best practice examples in terms of addressing the complex issue of affordable housing. She also weighs in on rent control measures and the administration’s executive order that creates a White House Council on eliminating barriers to affordable housing.
