The pressing topic of affordable housing is a matter of global import. Singapore and the City of Los Angeles have developed approaches to ameliorate housing insecurity and to address related land use issues.
Join Asia Society Southern California for a conversation on affordable housing and land use in Singapore and Los Angeles. The panelists will include Los Angeles’ Director of Planning, Vince Bertoni, and Chair of the Centre for Livable Cities under the Singaporean Ministry of National Development, Koon Hean Cheung. Among the topics they will discuss are Transit-Oriented Communities (TOCs) in LA, Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), the By-Right Housing Ordinance, and Singapore’s model for affordable housing and planning. The Director of the USC Lusk Center for Real Estate, Richard Green, will moderate.
This program is part of ASSC’s U.S.-Asia Real Estate Initiative (USAREI), which was launched in May 2020, in collaboration with the USC Lusk Center for Real Estate and the UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate. USAREI is a comprehensive, multi-year initiative to promote a deeper understanding of real estate issues that are of shared importance to Southern California and urban areas in Asian countries.
