Over the past few months I’ve been working with an exciting and diverse group of 20-34 year old Boston residents spanning the spectrum of professions, interests, neighborhoods and backgrounds. On Sunday, our work over the past 5 months comes to fruition in the form of #HUBisHome, a 3-hour event held at District Hall in Boston’s Seaport, to discuss all things housing in Boston.
We expect discussions to range from how to find an affordable rental in Boston (Yes, that is still somewhat possible), to steps to take to buy your first home. We also have some of the regions best policy makers and experts on housing, urban development and home design discussing current economic factors at play in the increasing housing costs in Boston as well as ideas for future housing in Boston.
Thanks to a great local startup, Jumpshell, we will allow guests the opportunity to share their favorite things about the neighborhoods in which they live, and have the opportunity to weigh in on changes they would like to see in their neighborhoods.
We are also lucky enough to be joined by former Boston City Councilor, former candidate for Mayor of Boston and current Real Estate Attorney with Prince Lobel, Mike Ross who will serve as master of ceremonies for the afternoon.
Below is the afternoons schedule of events. Hope to see all of my readers in attendance!
Starting a dialogue on the future of urban living in Boston and beyond.
