This project is a complex building of houses and galleries built in Tokyo, Toshimaku. One tree is organically integrated with a combination of parts having different characteristics, such as a trunk, a branch, and a leaf. As with the tree, we tried to create an organic architecture that could be formed by a hierarchical combination of different parts such as plants/pleats (as openings) / concrete boxes.Save this picture!© Vincent HechtSave this picture!Plants – DiagramSave this picture!© Vincent HechtWhile concrete boxes are stacked three-dimensionally, the main structure containing complicated voids is made. Then, open the windows with pleats in them, agitating the inside and outside, and at the same time create a place that fits with the physical sensation of the person. In addition, we set up planting around the pleats and create an organic whole like breathing in the surrounding environment like a tree.Save this picture!© Vincent HechtWe set up a calm environment such as bedrooms and a gallery inside of the box. On the other hand, the outside of the box becomes terraces, gardens, and the place surrounded by glass as the living room and dining room. Rather than focusing only the internal space of the building, the entire space including the external space like the garden and the street is three-dimensionalized. I intended to create a futuristic and savage architecture that awakens human animal instincts in which the inside and outside are reversed multiple times.

Wells Fargo & Company is teaming with several housing organizations to announce the formation of the Cincinnati chapter of the Wells Fargo NeighborhoodLIFT program, an initiative designed to offer $5.2 million from Wells Fargo to improve Cincinnati neighborhoods and increase homeownership in the area.Wells Fargo, NeighborWorks America, The Home Ownership Center of Greater Cincinnati, Neighborhood Housing Services of Hamilton, and Cincinnati Mayer John Cranley joined together earlier this week to announce the formation of the new program, which will begin with a two-day free homebuyer event on November 21 and 22 at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Downtown Cincinnati.”Making homeownership more affordable and revitalizing our neighborhoods will help make Cincinnati a stronger community,” Cranley said. “This terrific public-private collaboration will make a tremendous difference for families and neighborhoods through sustainable homeownership.”Out of the $5.2 million Wells Fargo is committing to the program, about $4.2 million will go toward down payment assistance grants, which are available to eligible homebuyers designed to help them overcome the barrier of putting forth a sufficient down payment to own a home. To receive a $15,000 down payment assistance grant, a homebuyer must have an annual income that does not exceed 120 percent of the Cincinnati area median income (about $82,000 for a family of four).The prospective homeowner must also meet other criteria to receive the down payment assistance grant, including completing an eight-hour homebuyer education session with The Home Ownership Center of Greater Cincinnati or another approved agency. To receive the full amount of the LIFT program grant, the homeowner must commit to live in the home for five years and qualify for a first mortgage. Homeowners may also use the down payment assistance grant to purchase a home that needs improvement by utilizing a new mortgage purchase 203k renovation loan. The down payment assistance program may be combined with other down payment assistance programs.”This innovative collaboration between NeighborWorks America, our network member, The Home Ownership Center of Greater Cincinnati, Inc., and Wells Fargo will put more Cincinnati families and individuals on the path to homeownership,” said Corinne Cahill, senior relationship manager of the Midwest Region at NeighborWorks America. “The required housing counseling and education classes, provided by certified professionals, have been shown to help homebuyers achieve successful and sustainable homeownership.”In addition to the money Wells Fargo is putting up for the down payment assistance grants, the bank is offering $500,000 toward the stabilization and improvement of Cincinnati neighborhoods.”Like many communities, Cincinnati neighborhoods were significantly affected by the housing crisis,” said J.R. Huber, area manager with Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. “While mortgages are available at relatively low interest rates, many families are unable to buy a home because they struggle with making the down payment. The NeighborhoodLIFT program can help local mortgage-ready homebuyers realize their dreams of owning a home.”Wells Fargo has now committed a total of $220 million to 30 housing markets through its LIFT programs with the addition of Cincinnati’s Neighborhood LIFT program. LIFT programs have helped more than 7,850 homeowners purchase homes since February 2012. Cincinnati is the eight city to receive the program in 2014.”The Home Ownership Center is proud to help families qualify for the Wells Fargo NeighborhoodLIFT program down payment assistance grants,” said Rick Williams, president and chief executive officer of The Home Ownership Center of Greater Cincinnati. “This investment will help individuals and families become homeowners, and support our larger community. It’s a smart time for families to invest in homeownership and to be first in line to access the down payment grants, people can register to start working with The Home Ownership Center of Greater Cincinnati.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Grant Program Creates Opportunities for Homeownership in Cincinnati Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honea Down Payment Assistance Home Ownership LIFT Program Ohio Wells Fargo 2014-10-29 Brian Honea Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Print This Post Subscribe Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Grant Program Creates Opportunities for Homeownership in Cincinnati Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago October 29, 2014 874 Views Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

Message* Contact Kevin Sun Share via Shortlink Clockwise from top left: Seattle, Boston and New York City (Photo Illustration by Kevin Rebong for The Real Deal)Real estate prices in the U.S. have risen at a steady pace since the last recession, and even a pandemic didn’t slow things down much in 2020, according to a new report. But your mileage may vary depending on the asset class you’re interested in.Real Capital Analytics’ US National All-Property Index ended 2020 up 7.3 percent year-over-year, with a late surge following a mid-year slowdown. Growth was particularly strong for industrial and multifamily properties, which rose by 8.8 and 8.3 percent, respectively. Office prices rose by just 1.5 percent, and retail prices fell 4.3 percent“In looking at the performance by property subtypes in 2020, it is clear the pandemic that hit the U.S. in early March had a sweeping negative effect on deal volume, with each subsector posting year-over-year declines,” RCA’s latest report states. “Pricing, on the other hand, has shown more variance, with some sectors faring much better than others.”ADVERTISEMENTThe spread between prices in the six major metros identified by RCA (New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Boston, and San Francisco) and the rest of the country increased to its largest point in nearly a decade. While the price index in the six major metros increased by 3.7 percent, the growth rate for all other markets was more than double that, at 7.8 percent.Growth in non-major metros has slightly outpaced that of major cities over the past cycle. The price index for the former rose 113 percent over the past decade, while that of the latter increased by 108 percent.On both the commercial and multifamily fronts, Manhattan prices suffered the most, according to RCA’s data. New York’s outer boroughs also saw slight declines, while its suburbs experienced positive growth.Through the first three quarters of 2020, Manhattan was also the most liquid property market in the U.S., and third worldwide behind only Paris and Berlin, according to a separate RCA report. The borough’s liquidity nevertheless hit a 10-year low, and was down 5.1 percent year-over-year at the end of Q3.Meanwhile, despite some optimism due to the roll out of Covid-19 vaccinations, property prices could still take a beating if current financial pressures lead to more distressed asset sales, which so far account for just 1 percent of total volume.“Nobody wants to take a loss on what is expected to be a temporary dislocation to income from the Covid-19 economic disruptions. … To the extent that they can, borrowers and lenders will continue to paper over problems in line with this optimism,” RCA senior vice president Jim Costello wrote in a report this month.“Still, even with anticipation of a temporary dislocation, some investors and lenders will not be able to hold on even with the finish line for the pandemic in sight,” he added.Read moreNY falls behind Dallas, LA in CRE investment as deals surge nationwideReport shows how much commercial real estate has fallen Full Name* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink TagsCommercial Real EstateCoronavirusTRD Insights Email Address*
