Making Room – Making a Splash!


The Making Room Design Showcase and Symposium was a tremendous success! Participants and attendees alike were energized by the possibilities for expanding housing types presented, and the potential for substantive change in the City’s housing regulations. Making Room is also generating a lot of attention from the press. Please visit our Facebook page for updates on the most current coverage. Making Room is the latest phase in CHPC’s ongoing examination of the mismatch between New York’s population and its available housing stock.
