Demystifying Millennials: What Type of Housing Do Millennials Want?

Sometime this year, millennials, who are roughly between the ages of 23 and 38 years old, will overtake baby boomers as the nation’s largest adult generation.  I, a millennial myself, spend a lot of time listening to and reading about what millennials want. (If only there was a millennial around to ask, right?) Here’s a […]

Cool Places to Live: Bradley Commons

Last fall, the City of Dover got some much-needed workforce housing thanks to The Housing Partnership! Bradley Commons, a mixed-use workforce housing project in downtown Dover, sits on the former site of St. Charles Church. The 39 one-, two-, and three-bedroom income-restricted apartment units rented out in just 90 days, which speaks to the demand […]

What’s a Charrette?

Two years ago, I was interviewing for an internship with the Workforce Housing Coalition of the Greater Seacoast. The director at the time was telling me about the organization’s workforce housing design charrettes. A what? What’s a charrette?

Go North, Young Man

Around here we’re used to encouraging Granite Staters to “Stay, Work [and] Play” in New Hampshire. Ranked towards the top of the United States in terms of safety, health and quality of life, NH’s virtues speak for themselves (while rendering our sales pitch a little easier in the process).

Slapping my perspiration-laden forearm out of reaction to a pinching sensation commonly associated with mosquitos, I lifted my hand from my arm to reveal a sickly collage of blood, sweat, and bug guts on my body. This wasn’t a new occurrence. There were many pests on the South Manchester rail trail — mostly black flies […]
