Habitat for Humanity New York City and Westchester County’s latest venture offers solutions to combat three significant challenges in NYC: a low homeownership rate, racial housing inequity, and building decarbonization.

The organization’s pioneering Net Zero project consists of 13 affordable single- and multi-family modular homes that will be developed in Jamaica, Queens. The homes, which will follow one of four architectural designs and incorporate Passive House principles, will provide a combined 19,500 square feet of affordable housing.

On April 26, join the Cross-Learning Alliance for an inside look at these homes. Speakers will provide background on how this ambitious idea came together. They will also discuss design goals, construction challenges, and how the project minimizes environmental impacts while supporting homeownership and low-cost maintenance.
