Denver’s affordable-apartment program is finally ready to launch — smaller and later than Mayor Hancock first intended

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock makes his State of the City address in the gymnasium at the Hiawatha Davis Jr. Recreation Center on July 10, 2017, in Denver. He focused part of the address on affordable housing programs. When Denver Mayor Michael Hancock underlined the urgency of the city’s housing affordability crisis in a speech last summer, he declared: “Many residents need an affordable option today, not a year from now.” But that’s how long it will end up taking to launch the potentially innovative initiative Hancock announced with those words in July 2017. The plan then was to use taxpayer money to “buy down” the rents of vacant market-rate apartments… Read More

The Monthly Interview: A Conversation with Christopher B. Leinberger

If you build it, they won’t come: Urbanist Chris Leinberger argues for harnessing market forces to reduce excessive housing costs. Among liberals, few topics are as hotly debated as gentrification. The issue is often presented in moralistic terms: privileged white people are pushing poor black and Hispanic people out of their neighborhoods. The truth is a little more complicated. Booms in places like New York City and Washington, D.C., have both positive and negative effects—including for the poor. They have revitalized previously dangerous and economically depressed neighborhoods, bringing better jobs, safer streets, and, for homeowners, rising property values. The rapid pace of change and rising rents also raise the danger,… Read More

Dense, Walkable Urban Cities Create YIMBY Neighbors

Not quite dead, but oversupplied. Photo via thegiantvermin @ flickr. Looking at the massive build up of low-density, car-dependent housing over the last 50 years, real estate developer Christopher Leinberger says in his book The Option of Urbanism that developers simply supplied too much of the wrong product in the wrong location. Yup, But, good news. Density in walkable urban areas tends to create YIMBY’s neighbors (Yes, In My Back Yard) because quality of life and property values get better. Leinberger doesn’t say the suburbs are dead – there will still be some demand for that product. But freedom to choose (that much lauded American ideal) means supplying the walkable… Read More

When You’re ‘Meant to Be Together,’ True Love Conquers All

Triumphant stories about tenacious love winning out over daunting obstacles are a staple of romance novels and the gossamer of take-me-away dreams. But for some people, the stories actually come true. Researchers have dubbed the phenomenon "lost-and-found love." Leslie Vreeland’s story is typical: In 1980, while home in Denver on a break from Smith College, Vreeland fell in love with Eric Ming. But Vreeland, now 40, aspired to a writing career in Manhattan. And Ming’s dream was to climb the Rockies. The geographic distance resulted in an emotional one. After three years, they broke up. He married quickly, but divorced three years later. Vreeland fell in love with someone else.… Read More
