Event Recap: A Developers’ Roundtable

On May 13, 2021, developers from around the region participated in a discussion about one of PLCC’s most pressing issues: how to create and preserve affordable housing in the the face of rising property values along the Purple Line. The event brought together county officials, funders, developers, and housing experts for a comprehensive conversation about what’s needed to create new affordable units.

The even featured:

→ A tour of Purple Line stations by Ralph Bennett, board president of Purple Line NOW.

→Presentations by the directors Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties’ housing development agencies about resources for affordable housing development.

→A discussion of financing sources from Enterprise Community Partners and the National Housing Trust.

→Profiles of neighborhoods and sites in the corridor that are ideal candidates for affordable housing.

→A presentation of the Villas at Langley, the apartment complex in Langley Park recently acquired by Jair Lynch.

The event was facilitated by the Housing Accelerator Action Team, a collaboration between the region’s housing agencies, housing nonprofits, and community organizations working together to realize the recommendations in the PLCC Housing Action Plan.

Materials from the event are available below.
