Matthias to discuss from the point of view of design, Nancy to discuss from point of view of financing/pro forma - opportunity to respond to each other's comments. Q2 - In light of the recent housing bubble - and changing urban demographics - how do we define affordable these days? Should we think of it differently than is formally defined by government agencies, funding streams etc.? Q3 - Housing as investment - For decades home ownership has been viewed as a key instrument of economic mobility. Recently we have seen a shift away from ownership to rental - and the future of equity building for modest homeowners seems unclear. How do you each view housing as an economic mobility device?
