The City We Need is Affordable Campaign - UN Habitat III in Quito

Posted By Bill Endsley, Monday, March 28, 2016

 

FIABCI Promotes the Best Private Sector Housing Solutions for Our Cities  

For close to a generation, salaries have barely increased while housing cost has substantially gone up. More and more people can no longer afford living in the city where they work. In several countries, persistent high unemployment rates, successive devaluation of currency, unsustainable student debts and unrecoverable loss of savings during economic upheavals further compound this housing crisis.

Although demand is growing exponentially for moderately-priced urban housing for rent or for sale, supply remains dangerously low in most cities worldwide. Several factors contribute to this critical imbalance:

  • Land price has increased rapidly, pushing total construction costs to levels sustainable only for the wealthy
  • Most investors focus on high-end residential developments in search of the highest returns thus providing little or no equity for affordable housing developments
  • Governments are tightening budgets, often reducing or limiting subsidies, tax reductions and zoning bonuses which have traditionally constituted the main incentives for moderately-priced home builders
  • Demand for such housing is too big for the public sector to resolve the problem alone.

A sincere and prompt intervention of the private sector is urgently needed and essential to alleviate the situation. As a special contribution to the Habitat III Conference in Quito in October 2016, FIABCI, will identify and collect best practices, innovations and smart solutions to this crisis. Widely publicizing and sharing these solutions will lead to a quick and substantial increase of moderately-priced housing around the world.

Here are the 3 steps for you to be a part of the solution:

  1. Join the International Campaign between March 16 to May 16.
  2. Outstanding solutions will be selected by an international jury of experts in June.
  3. If selected you will be invited to present your solution during a special FIABCI side event in Quito on October 18 from 15h to 18h, to which all governments and Civil Society participating to the Habitat III Conference will be invited.

We are soliciting entries from housing market participants who have developed successful solutions, particularly in the following areas:

FINANCING: Formulas sufficiently attractive and rewarding to encourage private and institutional investors to finance builders of moderately-priced housing; Financing options for city residents with little equity

ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN: attractive, green, sustainable, space and time saving, quick and less expensive to build

URBAN PLANNING: enabling a better quality of life, good social mix and resource sharing

BUILDING MATERIALS & TECHNIQUES: more efficient and that reduce costs and building time

TECHNOLOGIES & DATA: that lower construction and maintenance costs, enable efficiency and better planning

PUBLIC-PRIVATE Partnerships: formulas enabling a significant increase of building or renovation of moderately-priced housing

Success Across the Pacific - New Development Concepts

Posted By Bill Endsley, Saturday, May 2, 2015
Fueled by demographic change and concerns over quality of life, there has been a growing interest in communities with active transportation modes. The recession added another dimension to these discussions by emphasizing the economic implications of transportation choices. Housing and transportation, the two economic sectors mostly closely tied to the built environment, were both severely impacted by the economic downturn.
 
There has been a growing effort among planners, real estate professionals, and economists to identify not only the economic benefits of alternative transportation modes in and of themselves, but also the impact that they have on housing prices and value retention. The real estate mantra of “location, location, location” is more important than ever. Moving beyond the traditional arguments that good schools and neighborhood amenities impact housing prices, emerging research has indicated that urban form and transportation options have played a key role in the ability of residential properties to maintain their value since the onset of the recession.
 
Transit Oriented Development (TOD) is one of the major themes of the Asia Pacific Real Estate Congress (APREC) September 10-12 in Honolulu, HI. Click here to find out more.
