To Build More Affordable Housing, Developers Need These 4 Things

It is not easy being an affordable housing developer in the San Francisco Bay Area. “We want to build more housing, but it doesn’t happen very easily,” Palo Alto Housing CEO Candice Gonzalez said during Bisnow’s recent Bay Area Affordable Housing event in San Francisco. She said affordable housing needs four Ds to work: dollars, dirt, determination and density. Without funding, land, political will and the density and zoning that allows for these kinds of projects, affordable housing doesn’t happen.
