At the Pennsylvania Association of Housing & Redevelopment Agencies (PAHRA) Annual Conference 2023, Buchanan's Michelle Yarbrough Korb and Nathan D. Clark delivered a presentation titled "Seize the Opportunity: Conversion of Unused Real Estate." The presentation focused on the potential of excess real estate holdings, including vacant office space, shuttered hotels, housing owned by higher education institutions, or real estate owned by religious organizations. Our speakers also discussed how to leverage unique partnerships to create affordable housing or other usable spaces.
