"We need more housing"

Wagner�s Ingrid Gould Ellen was interviewed for the Bloomberg Administration�s PLANYC2030 report about the planning implications arising from rapid population growth, aging infrastructure and environmental pressures anticipated during the next quarter-century. Professor Ellen�s remarks focus on the growing demand for housing. She is codirector of the Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy, a joint center between the NYU School of Law and the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. The Furman Center is a leading academic research center devoted to the public policy aspects of land use, real estate development and housing. Each year, it produces a widely read reach, the State of New York City�s Housing and Neighborhoods. Among the other resources hosted by the center�s website is http://plannyc.com, an independent source of information about pending land use decisions that was developed by Jordan Anderson as part of his Master of Urban Planning Capstone project at Wagner.
