Mimi Hoang, AIA, co-founding principal of nARCHITECTS, recipient of the 2017 American Institute of Architects Architecture Award for Carmel Place; Sarah Watson, deputy director, Citizens Housing & Planning Council, and Kirk Goodrich, Monadnock Development, share the story of this building type that provides another housing choice for New York residents.
