Bottom Line Conversations: The Future of Financing Community Land Trust Acquisitions

Watch Next City’s Senior Economics Correspondent Oscar Perry Abello in the latest webinar series that goes beyond the issues of equitable economic development to talk to the people who do the work. 

March 16, 2022

Join Next City's Senior Economics Correspondent Oscar Perry Abello this month as he talks to Saki Bailey of the San Francisco Community Land Trust (SFCLT).

The SFCLT recently completed a $9.4 million acquisition of a building with 40 apartments using zero public subsidies in the middle of a notoriously competitive real estate market (which we covered here). We will talk with Bailey about her career as an attorney, policy advocate, and researcher on shared equity ownership models, currently culminating in her current role as SFCLT's executive director. We’ll also talk about what this acquisition means, and the work that remains to continue building a real estate system that doesn’t rely on generating profits for developers to work.

Next City’s series “The Bottom Line” explores scalable solutions for problems related to affordability, inclusive economic growth and access to capital. The series is made possible with support from Citi.
