The Cost of Building Housing Webinar Series

As part of our ongoing Cost of Building Housing Research Series, the Terner Center has launched a webinar series to provide a forum for in-depth and interactive exploration of our work on rising development costs.

Making It Pencil: The Math Behind Housing Development



A recording of the webinar is available here.

Our first webinar in the series, Making It Pencil: The Math Behind Housing Development, was hosted on May 24th, 2018 and focused on the challenges that Bay Area developers face in producing housing as well as commonly misunderstood realities behind the economics of housing development.
