O.K it don't look at public housing but actually it is. These buildings are for low and medium income.




The architecture is supurb but I'm interested to see the inside especially the low-income ones.

That's the most hideous thing I think I've ever seen..
Looks almost exactly like the headquarters for the Trinity Broadcasting Network (a US televangelist TV station).. Except with worse proportions..

The Knickerbocker Village is NYC's very first housing project.

I've never understood this about american low-income housing projects:

Can you choose in what project you wanna settle or do you just get offered one?

And is the rent higher in more Central projects?
I mean, is the rent higher in for example LES and Harlem-apartments than in East New York projects?

Vienna:



The high blocks in the center are the complex Alt-Erlaa. Public houses for lower middle class to middle class.
Their special feature: every blook has its own swimming pool on its top. I heard that what might seem like luxury is in fact the heart of the whole concept. The pools forged right from the beginning a strong community in the blocks as in summer the whole block meets up on the roof cooling down.

The complex is principally like a complete town on its own, shopping, doctors, cafes an own subway station that connects it right to the city center within perhaps 10-15 min etc etc. Even an own TV station exists. There are rumors that its the public housing complex with the by far highest inhabitants satisfaction. That can be seen also by the problems to get in their. Its nearly impossible. Childrens who grew up their to a surprising high extend are trying to get an appartment for themselves as well when being grown up.

Amsterdam knows the system of mixing public housing together with so-called free market sector. Therefore many buildings (also historical ones in the city centre) have appartments for both low and high income inhabitants.


This is a famous, very well kept public housing district of the 20's, situated in the western harbour area.
Monthly rental costs of appartments (40-65 m2) vary from 340 to approx. 480euro.

























"Diamont district", Amsterdam south.





Public housing of the 60 & 70's.








Commie blocks in the suburbs










some of them were demolished a few years ago. Other ones (pics below) were renovated and sold out.






This is public housing and free sector mixed

Obscene, it is called affordable housing, so the rent is very cheap. Depending on what place, a person may have to go through some tests to get the palce. The process is not easy for some, though some can be just by going to the landlord. I am only speaking for the process around where I live.

Thats what they are doing in some US cities like Chicago. The Cabrini Green for example is one where mixed housing is being implemented. On the other hand, public housing projects such as The Hilliard Homes were converted to a combination of family and senior housing.

Does anyone know how these La Defense towers look from the inside or can anybody show some pics of their interiors?
Years ago they were very modern, but I am curious about their condition now.

This link contains tons of pics of this housing project (Tours Aillaud aka Tours Nuages) near La Défense.









Another link : http://eras.free.fr/html/archi/nuages.html





This huge housing project has got a pretty bad reputation : ghettoization, drug dealers, poverty, etc...

yes it was one of the biggest drug dealing district of the paris area (and thus it was quite safe), now things are changing because of increased police activities. The drug dealers are going into neighboring projects/

Other than this does the area around La Defense have a large concentration of public housing?

Wow, Paris has the most beautiful and the ugliest housing projects that I have ever seen.

The latter looks like a more giant version of a housing project in Chicago.



I don't live in Chicago obviously, but I have heard that they are destroying their projects left and right, I wonder if these are still around? Does anyone know...?

The one in the photo is Hilliard Homes. The buildings were listed to the National Register of Historic Places and were converted to affordable private flats. The cylindrical buildings were coverted to senior housing while the rest is for families.

The major ones such as Cabrini Green and Robert Taylor were converted to mixed income housing.
