FAC to present at DCC’s Vienna Housing Model Exhibition
Interested in Housing, Demography, New Affordable Living? Prof. William Hynes, FAC Managing Director, will be speaking at the Vienna Housing Model exhibition in CHQ, Dublin Docklands, this coming Monday, 8th April (9:30-13:00). Vienna has pioneered new thinking in sustainable, high quality residential and cost-rental approaches. The city of Vienna has achieved extraordinary milestones in public housing: today, over 60% of the population lives in subsidized housing, and the city itself owns 220,000 rental units―about 25% of the total housing stock. Another 200,000 affordable housing units are owned by limited-profit housing associations. The city is clearly in control of the housing market. Dublin City Council’s free exhibition runs in various places until 25th April.
