Caroline Woolard Flips the Real Estate Script
How can New Yorkers hope to stay put in a city where rents make living all but impossible? Impelled by her own personal experiences, artist and organizer Caroline Woolard advocates for permanently affordable space in New York City, banding together with artists and non-artists alike to build a real estate investment cooperative. The organization’s goal is to use individual member investments to inject capital into projects that turn vacant municipal properties into sustainable community resources and work with private owners to stabilize existing businesses and community spaces.
Arlington Passages: Nonie
Empty nester, Sister, Adventure-seeker. Meet Nonie! Faced with newfound freedom, an empty nester sets out to rediscover herself.
Thoughts on Parking
A look at how parking influences the design and use of our neighbourhoods and cities.
Toronto is often perceived to be a flat geography, but the truth is that civil engineering has hidden a vast network of river ravines from our sight. Many people are unaware of this bounty of green spaces that add up to 30 times the area of NYC’s Central Park. We hope to change the way people see the nature we’re fortunate to have in our midst. These oases from the swirl of urban life will become even more important to our quality of life as our city continues to grow.
Urban Planning Lingo: A-Z
YouTube’s Chris Jones gives a quick and sarcastic primer on urban planning terms.
