Design & Innovation in Multi-Unit Housing 

March 24
History Colorado Center
1200 Broadway, Denver
Vacancy rates for apartments were below 5 percent in the metro area in 2014. To alleviate the squeeze on rentals, the inventory of apartments—unlike single-family homes—is expected to surge as thousands of new units are being completed. But many of those target the higher end of the market, leaving a shrinking supply of homes and apartments affordable to low and middle-income families. In this symposium, Architectural Record takes a look at Denver’s particular housing needs, and the latest multi-unit buildings going up in the Mile-High City.
