Plaza Roberto Maestas in Seattle; the Lindley in Bethesda, Maryland; and the Watson in Quincy, Massachusetts, have been selected as the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Terwilliger Center for Housing’s 2019 Jack Kemp Excellence in Affordable and Workforce Housing Award.
From the Hudson County View:
Betty Morris had two very big families: one was her immediate family, with 16 children, as well as her family-at-large – the residents of the Marion Gardens Housing Complex.
Back in 1974, when the family was under threat, she took action by heading down to Washington D.C. to fight for the necessary funding to keep the complex alive.
“My mother was a selfless person,” said Lori Walker, the youngest of Morris’ 16 children.
Public art is everywhere at Woodhill Homes — much of it historic, dating from the 1930s and 1940s.
A panel on a building shows a woman hoisting a basket of fruit above her head. In the community center gym, WPA murals cover the walls, showing scenes of everyday life from when the complex was built. But for the public housing development's current residents, what the art doesn't depict is just as noticeable as what it does.
From The Columbus Dispatch:
Developers are moving forward on the second phase of the River & Rich project in Franklinton: an office and apartment tower overlooking the Scioto River.
From U.S. News & World Report:
Evidence of a life filled with love, cultural pride and art gathered quickly in William Brown's room.
But two years ago, he would have had no place to put gifts from his daughter and sister that sit on top of his fridge, the photograph of his recently deceased mother that smiles from his living room table or the books about arts, photography and Tlingit history that sit on most available surfaces.
