Under the direction of Victoria Basolo
, Professor of Planning, Policy, and Design, the Transit Oriented Development and Environment-Friendly Design on Affordable Housing Project has been initiated by a consortium of funders, including Wells Fargo, SVA-Architects and Susan Hori, Esq. This project will use data from seven sites developed by Jamboree Housing Corporation
in Los Angeles and Orange County to provide new knowledge about trends in low-income housing development and the consequences, if any, of seeking multiple social goals in producing this housing. This study will be the first of its kind and will produce results that are of theoretical interest (residential choice and travel behavior) and, equally important, of practical importance to developers and public policymakers.
