Kreisman Initiative on Housing Law and Policy Symposium

Bringing together leading housing academics, policy makers, and practitioners from the public, private, and innovation spheres, the Kreisman Housing Law and Policy Initiative’s annual Symposium held on May 1, 2023, “Missing Middle Housing: The Key to Scaling Affordability?” focused on whether building and preserving “middle housing” — the tier of housing that falls between single family homes and high-rises, typically in smaller buildings — can create more affordable housing options in the United States, where housing has become increasingly unaffordable, particularly in well-serviced neighborhoods.

The event was held at the David Rubenstein Forum, 1201 E. 60th St., 3rd floor, on the University of Chicago campus. The symposium was made possible by substantial support from David Kreisman AB ’60, JD ’63, and his wife, Susan.
