Very Good Reporting on Condo Conversions with Human Costs and Mechanisms
The Washington Post is doing a special series entitled "Forced Out: The Cost of D.C.'s Condo Boom" that is worth reading and could be a good addition to a housing/property and of course poverty law class. The stories so far:
- Debbie Cenziper & Sarah Cohen, "Landlords Profit from Decay," Washington Post, Mar. 9, 2008.
- Debbie Cenziper & Sarah Cohen, "In One Heated Dispute, Someone Set a Fire," Washington Post, Mar. 10, 2008.
- Another tomorrow... Available through the series' main site.
There is also audio slideshow entitled "The Wrong Side of Renewal" and an interactive map with details on how many tenants were forced out and the complaints made in the process of developers making way for condo conversions (the cost savings to developers that comes with vacancy is presented in a Post diagram).
