"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.
