    Austin's extraordinary growth has resulted in an acceleration of densifying trends influencing U.S. real estate over the past decade. Market forces and current regulatory processes often result in the demolition of older but affordable homes to make way for newer, sometimes denser and frequently market-rate housing. However, the demolition of existing market-affordable housing adds to displacement pressures on residents and can warp neighborhood attributes. ULI Austin performed a Technical Assistance Panel for the City of Austin and Preservation Austin to identify what policies, programs, and tools could be implemented to preserve historic-age housing (defined as 50 years old and older) while supporting affordability and preventing displacement. Panelists will discuss the cultural and economic value of preserving existing housing stock, the challenges and opportunities encountered during the renovation and restoration process, and the role of policy in supporting preservation efforts. Join us to learn how preserving older elements of the built environment can help decrease economic segregation, increase equity, and keep Austin weird.
