Join ULI Westchester/Fairfield on February 25, 2021 for a presentation on the architectural history and design of early-20th-century apartment buildings in Westchester and Fairfield Counties, led by Gary Brewer, partner at Robert A.M. Stern Architects. Gary will discuss the rise in popularity of apartment living in the area and present case studies of successful multi-family housing developments. Drawing from his extensive experience in the design field, Gary will also share critical lessons learned and best practices for present and future multifamily housing design. Questions and answers will follow the presentation.
